Crossfire with A8 3870K w/ radeon 6550D intergated graphics

My processor is a A8 3870K that has integrated radeon 6550D graphics.
The box of the processor mentions it can crossfire with any of the following direct x 11 capable graphics cards HD 6670, HD 6570, and HD 6450

I was wondering if it would be possible to crossfire this processor with a radeon 5570 instead of the listed cards?

hi,

no, you can't.
you can crossfire only cards which are in the same" family": for example, you can crossfire two Radeon HD 55xx series cards, but not a 6xxx series card with a 5xxx series card.

Your best bet is to get the Hd 6670 that will yeild the best performance and that will be the max Gpu for the A8 which will boost it atleast 50 %

By the way , do you guys think it would be better to use the processor graphics or the 5570 for maximum gaming performance?
