Crossfire ready mobo and an nVidia GPU, will they work? Tags: Graphics Cards Crossfire Nvidia Graphics Last response: March 30, 2008 1:28 AM in Graphics & Displays Share element54 March 29, 2008 5:42:13 PM 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?

You can not use SLI... but single cards, and even dual cards will work.
