Default ATI Hybrid Graphics Technology Support

This is what I just noticed on the mobo I purchased...

"Based on ATI CrossFireX multi-GPU technology, ATI Hybrid Graphics allows you to combine the performance of the HD4200 integrated GPU with an applicable ATI Radeon graphics card to bring enhanced gaming performance, productivity and power efficiency. "

Once I get the parts in with my GPU (which is an ATI) how do I configure this?

just because you're getting an ati card doesn't mean you can use it. hybrid crossfire only works with a few very low end cards, like the hd 3400/4300 series, and i'm assuming the low end hd 5000 series if you're getting a mobo with an 800 series chipset. it's only meant to provide a small boost in performance compared to just using the onboard gpu alone.

i know there was a chart of some sort from ati that showed all the compatible cards, but i can't find it... but i know for a fact it's only for low end cards.

i'm not sure what card it is that you're getting now, a 5770 i think? if yes then it won't work.

Ah, okay. I don't really think it's going to be an issue then.
