AMD A10 PRO 8850b crossfire compatibility

Hello I purchased a bunch of 16gb 1866 ram and an AMD A10 PRO 8850B CPU, for pair I got a asus R7 250 2gb DDR5 display adapter, but when I tried to crossfire, usually get errors and amd catalyst driver stop the work and freeze or quit from the games.

Is that APU has any alternative graphic card for crossfire ?

Return the 250, buy a 260, disable the APU's GPU, and enjoy higher performance than you could ever get with Dual Graphics.

Many thanks  for suggestion, if it is going to change a display adapter actually I can't see much difference between 250 and 260 but it seems R7 265 is a good choice, I think.

You mean aside from the fact the 260 is over twice as powerful as the 250?

http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/graphics/desktop/r7# I compared from here and actually in china 265 and 260 prices almost same and some shops are prices higher than r7 265 and I decide if I disable the apu graphics, I prefer to use r7-265 it is 256 bit and memory band with is going Up to 179.2 GB/s and 1024 - 16 compute units, it seems it is a nice graphic card...

Many thanks you gave me idea, I dig more for prices and compare r7- 260, r7-260x and r7-265, and I decide it to purchase a r7-265
