Is it possible to crossfire a gts 250 and 9800 gtx?

My motherboard supports it, but I'd rather ask before plugging things in.

I'm trying to get a little more life out of my system, and have the 9800GTX sitting around.

More about crossfire 9800
  1. Apparently nVidia's drivers prevent this from happening.
  2. Does your motherboard support SLI? That is the nVidia equivalent of crossfire(crossfire is only for ATI cards)

    A quick google search is showing me that it likely doesnt in which case you are out of luck sorry.
  3. That's what I thought, but I was hopeful.

    Thanks everyone, have a great night!
  4. Could he SLI a 9800GX2 and his card?
  5. 9800GX2+9800GTX should work. It's the equivalent of an HD5970 and an HD5870 in terms of cards.
  6. Yeh, he should be able to pick up a 9800GX2 for like 150$ second hand. Also, it's realy not like a 5970+5870, mor elike 4870x2 and 4870.
  7. Except that his board only supports CF not SLI
