Crossfire
 
I bought the mnotherboard Asus P7P55 LX for my new computer and I would like to put two Sapphire HD 530 Game Edition.

My motherboard support the crossfire. I would like to know if I need a cable to connect the 2 graphic card or not

Thanks

Usually, at least one crossfire bridge should be including in every radeon purchase. You need only one bridge for two cards.

If you don't have one kicking around, check the Buy & Sell area or even a local enthusiast pc store; part is relatively cheap and everyone seems to have extras.

yes crossfire should come with at least one bridge to connect 2 cards.

While speaking of this subject, I know some card can be connected with 2 bridges, does this change anything ?

Nope doesn;t do anything.... in older drivers I heard of some actual decreases in performance with two birsges because of some errors but its fine now.

Anyways 1 or 2 bridges = no difference

You just need one bridge. The cards have 2 tabs so that you can run tri / quad fire.
