Default Crossfire Question

If i am using One video card that supports crossfire, does that necessarily mean i need to buy a hard drive that has Ati crossfire support? And do i need to have a hard drive with a pci-e connector?

This is the video card i am looking at.

Newegg.com - DIAMOND Viper 3850PE3512O Radeon HD 3850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Hard drive compatibility has nothing to do with the video card at all. The only thing you have to think about with Hard Drives is SATA or IDE support on the mobo.
