Sorry for my bad English and I hope you can help me.

I have an Asus motherboard M4A88TD-M and want to know what is the best Video Card I can put it Hybrid CrossFire mode?

buy at the store where they said the motherboard has an integrated ATI HD 4250 (880G Chipset) video and I can do Hybrid CrossFire ATI Radeon HD 4350, 4550 and the new model 5450.

Help me please, once you purchased the Video Card I can not do returns

I think the video card has to have CrossFireX Support. The PowerColor 5450 might work in your system as Hybrid, but I'm not a 100% sure.

Anyway I don't think you'll see much of a difference with Hybrid CrossfireX.. Just buy a 5570 instead, you'll have much better performance..

I kind of agree with you. The onboard would probably hold back or bottleneck the performance of a new video card.

In fact, onboard graphics utilises the CPU mostly when gaming. If you're watching blu-ray movies, there aren't any differences you can notice.
