Nope. Generally speaking one requires a very similar card to use an dual GPU configuration, if not an identical card.

In general No. SLI requires 2 Nvidia cards and Crossfire requires 2 AMD cards. There are as said specific rules that govern which two cards can be used in tandem as well.

You can get motherboards and indeed special cards that have a chip on them from Lucid, that allow cards from Nvidia and AMD to work together but its not something I have any personal experience with.

There are a lot of motherboards that support this Lucid Virtu™ Universal® MVP GPU virtualization support.

That is not what I was talking about, My bad I should have been more specific. I was talking about the Lucid Hydra chip.

That board does not have the chip, that board is Crossfire only capable. If it had the chip it would be pretty obvious, as you can see in the picture that is in the link I posted its quite large, its about the size of a second CPU.
