Can we use Multi-GPU with an AMD/ATI and Nvidia GPU?

I've been very curious that can I use my old HD 5450 and GTX 630 with my current GTX 650 Ti Boost as a rig of Multi-GPU. I've still not tried searching on Internet.

I also want to know that can we somehow (or) using any software, pair two Nvidia or ATI GPU's which do not support SLI or CrossfireX and via motherboard bandwith.

Thanks.

Lucid Hydra could do it, but you'd need a motherboard that supports it. And the results haven't been that good...

650tiBoost is much faster than the other two so you'd better just sell those other cards or turn them into keyrings :)

Kari, I have ASUS P8Z77-V Motherboard kept all open in front of me. No issues with editing. Just an issue with changing the mobo.

Good News, Kari!
Because I keep experimenting my PC, I just read the motherboard drivers disk and there is an option for-
Lucid Logix Virtu MVP Wizard
Lucid Logix Virtu MVP Software

Now all I have to do is wait for my GT 630 and ATI Raedeon HD 5450 to come back from repair. :-)

And the next problem I have is that does it support 3 GPU's together? My MOBO has 3 PCI-E x16 Slots.

Lucid Logix Virtu MVP and Lucid Hydra are not the same thing and Hydra only worked with a few GPU combinations IIRC.

Okay then, case solved. This config won't work on my PC.
