Running a NVIDIA Graphics Card on an AMD 780g motherboard?
I have recently purchased an Asus CG Essentio Series desktop. It came bundled with a low end ATI Radeon graphics card. I bought the machine for video editing purposes, in hoping of cutting down on half the cost it would run me for a Mac setup. I have Premiere CS5 among other CS5 software, however, Premiere only supports a few ATI cards (obviously not my own) and several NVIDIA cards.
I apologize for this question in advance but I'm fairly new to PC's since I have been a MAC user for eons.
Is it possible to run an NVIDIA graphics card with the AMD 780g motherboard and chipset? The compatibility of cards that Adobe's Premiere CS5 advertises is pretty slim, mostly supporting the NVIDIA Quadro series.
I have heard around other forums that it would work but problems arise in the SLI technology since it won't be compatible with crossfire and such. I'm very confused and am looking for some clarification.
I'm running windows 7 home 64-bit.

Yep, it will work fine. SLI and Crossfire are multicard technologies for gaming, so do not worry about losing them.
One thing to watch out for though: if you get a mid or high end Quadro, check your PSU's 12V Current (A) rating to make sure it can handle your new card.
