    Is it possible to crossfire a Gigabyte HD 6950 2Gb card with a 2 GB HD7870?? Let me clarify. I already have the HD 6950 and am thinking of getting a 2GB 7870. If that won't work will a 7850 work with the 6950?

    no, 6900 cards can only be crossfired with other 6900 cards. same with 7800 cards, they can only run in crossfire with other 7800 cards.

    nope. you have to match the GPU very closely

    for example, 5830/50/70 were crossfire compatible with each other, but not with say a 5770 or 6870

    So a 6950 could only crossfire with either a 6970 or another 6950??

    if i'm not mistaken, if you can unlock your 6950 shader to match the 6970, and by doing it that 6950 can also crossfired with a 6990...
