  1. I have a Saphire x1950gt pcie graphics card on a Asus P5K Crossfire mobo and a Hiper 530w Type M PSU.

    My questions are :

    Do i need to buy another saphire x1950gt card to run crossfire?
    Will my PSU provide me with enough power for crossfire?
    Do i need a special crossfire card or will just another normal card work as the second card?

    I don't know how close Crossfire and SLi are related but I know that with SLi you need to use identical cards for it to work. My guess would be that this falls true for Crossfire as well. For example, you wouldn't be able to use a x1950gt w/ a x1900xt etc...
