hi i am new to both this forum and crossfire tech i am an sli man and recently changed because i heard crossfire is better i have a ati radeon hd 5550 and a motherboard which support crossfire what i dont understand is how and what graphics cards work as i don't seem to need a cable linking the two cards according to the crossfire chart at

theres a chart half way down and it says as far as i understand it that a hd 5450 will work with my hd 5550 i was thinking of buying a new card to go with the rareon hd 5550 i was going to buy the PowerColor HD 5570 1GB DDR3 and see how that works as i said i am an sli man can work tht inside out but this seems strange theres more than one way to get this crossfire to work but the way my board works(asrock A790GXH/128M) it seems to work through the board with no need to connect the cards together can any one help me with this what will work with my new board and the existing card ati radeon hd 5550 512mb
