Since they are essentially the same gpu, r7 265 being rebadged HD7850, but you may have to overclock one/downclock (for compatibility and to prevent scaling issues) the other one since the r7 265 runs at a slightly higher clock.. But they should work fine in crossfire.

As long as you're buying a new card, why not get the R9 280? Sapphire's 280 is only $50 more expensive than a 265, has twice the performance, and you will not have any of the drawbacks of Crossfire. Plus once you sell the 7850, you'll end up paying less than you would for the 265.
