Crossfire ready mobo and an nVidia GPU, will they work?

I have an ASUS P5WD1-E Premium mother board that is Crossfire Ready.

My ATI X1900XTX card burnt out on me the other day.



I got an offer to buy an nVidia 8600 card for $50 to replace my ATI card until i update my mobo and CPU with a new top-o-the-line video card.

Other than the Crossfire Ready part i can't find anything that suggest that my mobo won't work with a single PCI Express nVidia card.

Any input?

  1. Im using gigabyte x38 ds4 motherboards here which are crossfire ready but work perfectly well with single 8800gtx's, wont do SLI obviously but single nvidia gpu is fine on these boards.
  2. The above poster is correct. You can not use SLI... but single cards, and even dual cards will work.
  3. Chipset/motherboard only matters if you are running SLI or Crossfire.
    Other than that, you may use any make video card on any motherboard. Makes absolutely no difference what-so-ever.
  4. yes, as long you're not doing sli
