For Crossfire to work, you have to have a Crossfire-capable motherboard with a second PCIe 16x slot. If you do, you need to buy the same card as what you have now. I'm pretty sure it doesn't have to be the same manufacturer, but you should get the same card (1950XTX 512MB) and similar speeds. If the clock speeds are different, the faster one will simply slow down to slower speed.

I assume other swill have more info for you as well.
