You need to Crossfire the 7650 with a like card.

You need a 7650 to Crossfire with the IGP.

The GPU (video card) has to be in the same series to Crossfire IE 7*** or 6***. You can't Crossfire a 6670 with a 7650. You need a 7650 or 7770 or similar 7000 series dedicated GPU to Crossfire with your APU.
