No , I am not saying all 5870M's crossfire. If I were you, I would send that back and get a single 7970M. (it would be faster)
The dell specific MXM 3.0B cards for the alienware's though have crossfire connectors. So do some Sager / Clevo ones. It depends on the s/n of the actual card.
And second, that video I post, those cards are 5870's. You can look at the end of the video where he has GPU-Z up and those cards are showing up as 5870Ms.... So I'm not sure what video you watched but its not the one I posted. (5min for the crossfire connectors and 8:50 for the GPU screen shot with the 5870M crossfire . That same guy also put a 580M in his laptop as well. And he shows how to upgrade the same laptop with an I7 engineering sample. He's a pretty good resource as far as what will work with your laptop.).
