Knowing what goes with what when it comes to AMD CrossFire configurations can be a bit of a headache, so we've compiled a list of CrossFire compatible graphics cards and which other GPUs they can CrossFire with. 

The advent of the new AMD Radeon R9 and R7 ranges of cards has thrown a new spanner into the mix as the naming system changes, but this should help clarify exactly what graphics cards you'll be able to CrossFire with your current AMD setup....

Of course it's important to remember that a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, so while cards like the Radeon HD 7970 and Radeon HD 7950 can in theory CrossFire, the 7970 will have to take a significant performance hit to run alongside the 7950.
