Disappointed RX 480 User - Crossfire Question - Fury Nano addition?

I have a question. I am not happy with the driver support for the RX480 (there are a few games that will not work at all) so i am thinking of adding a Fury Nano or Fury X to my system.

 

I have two RX 480 cards in my system now and I am pleased overall but its frustrating that some things are not working and no updates as to when fixes will be implemented (The Evil Within -for one-)... so...questions:

 

1. can I define which crossfire card is "master"? This would allow me to add a nano into the third slot (it has slightly limited space due to MB connectors at the bottom edge of the MB. (ASUS x99-A II v3 motherboard). If I can define which is master crossfire card i can keep all three in. If not:

 

2. If I remove my master rx480 and replace it with furyx or fury nano will the remaining rx480 still function as normal even though it is running behind an "older" card?

 

Its a shame I am having to spend more cash on this system just so the things I have had working will work again but that is the price you pay for new technology. You do not even get free games with your hardware anymore as a consolation prize. I have been with ATI since my 7970s but I am starting to look at the NVIDIA sections on newegg and amazon prime....

 

xfx fury x for $399 right now is a good price though.
