Crossfire questions?

  1. I'm not sure if I understand ATI crossfire very much.

    I thought I would try it out on a new build and I did, you can read my specs in my sig below.

    Anyways I bought my card and on the box it said I needed a:
    1. A crossfire mobo (which I have).
    2. A crossfire edition gfx card.
    3. A crossfire ready gfx card.

    Apparently I only had a crossfire ready card.

    My question is: What card could I buy to get the most for my money?

    I think the other card has to be in the same "family" (as in another 1600 card)
    I had my eye on an x1650xt for around $150

    No real budget because this is just a plan for the future.

    any help appreciated

    You need another of the SAME card. Note that the X1600 doesn't need a crossfire edition card, although they sell them anyway :suspiciou
