Default Running crossfire

Alright I was thinking about gettting a 2nd videocard and running in crossfire mode. My question is were do I get the cable to hook them up? The first videocard I got didn't include a crossfire cable. I looked at a demo of how to set it up on tigerdirect and it shows a connector going from 1 card to the other then something comming down from the power supply? If I just buy one and put it in will it automatically set it up to run dual cards? Spec's below.

assuming its like SLI, the motherboard should have come with an adapter to help with the setup.

if i remeber correctly, you will need to change some settings in the control pannel to utilize the second card.

Well the motherboard came with a SLI connector. Under the bios it has a tab for enabling sli and changing the setting around. Nothing said about crossfire in the manual.

i belive (some one correct me if i'm wrong) that mother boards are either SLI or Crossfire, not both. (hence the two versions of some higher end boards, some with crossfire, others with SLI in the name.
