You will also need a crossfire bridge to connect another 3650 512mb card to that one. The 3650's I had didn't have the connectors, they used and software bridge.

It is not worth the time or effort or money to track down another 3650. Buying a new 7750 to replace your 3650 would get you a lot more speed and probably zero hassle.

You will need another 3650 that has the crossfire fingers, and crossfire bridge and a mother board with 2 pcie x16 slots. The second slot doesn't need to be electrically x16 just need to be able to hold the card.

It is not worth the time or effort or money to track down another 3650. Buying a new 7750 to replace your 3650 would get you a lot more speed and probably zero hassle.
I actually totally agree with this statement. The money you would have into finding another 3650, crossfire bridge, and a new mobo with 2x pcie 16 slots would for out weight any benefit you would get. I would just sell the 3650 and get a 7 series Amd card. The performance gain will be night and day. It like going from a YUGO to a Corvette. :toast:

3rd to agree,

Along with all the problems mentioned no crossfire or sli setup gives you a 100% performance increase. Then there's also driver issues with crossfire. Also in my experience ive found games to be picky when it comes to crossfire, few work brilliantly and love it, most have a performance increase but not what I personally would have liked. But some games either hate it and perform worse or ignore it completely and perform exactly the same.
