More about heard crossfire nvidia card together
  1. raid does not concern gfx cards .it means redundunt array of inexpensive drives.you do hybrid multi gpu if you have a lucid hydra certified mobo only
  2. You cannot CF an NVIDIA and an AMD card together.
  3. Panwala95 & azeem40 pretty much covered it. You need Lucid Hydra, which pretty much doesn't work, to do hybrid multi gpu. So it's not worth looking into. Try again in 2 or 3 years.

    You can, however, crossfire non-identical AMD cards together. Whereas you cannot SLI non-identical NVidia cards (with the exceptions of 512MB/1GB versions or rebranding such as 9800GTX+ w/ GTS 250). There are many limitations on non-identical crossfire though: http://sites.amd.com/PublishingImages/Public/Graphic_Illustrations/WebBannerJPEG/AMD_CrossfireX_Chart_1618W.jpg

  4. There are driver hacks where you can use an nvidia card as a physx card with an amd gpu.
