Short n sweet. Yes you can use your ATI GPU.

Yep. As long as the card is PCI express and the Motherboard has a slot avilable.

I agree with the yes's :)  especialy since thats what im doing Nforce4 with an ATI graphics card and I hear you can also run Crossfire too but I havent had a chance to try it yet lol

From what I have found crossifre is blocked in the drivers from working in NF4 SLI mobos. I had wanted to try this with my DFI, but didn't buy the master card as I couldn't find one case where it worked. Theoretically it should work, but unfortunately it doesn't.

BTW, I'd sincerely love to be proved wrong and be shown a case where 2 crossfire cards outperform one single of those cards in an NF4 mobo.
