  1. Short n sweet. Yes you can use your ATI GPU.
  2. Yep. As long as the card is PCI express and the Motherboard has a slot avilable.
  3. k thanks
  4. 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
  5. 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.

    That could be... oh well, even so, you can buy a crossfire mobo and us both settings. :wink:
  9. I"m sure the SLI board wouldnt be much harder to crack.....

    X1800 is gonna be a biznitch.
