Not yet. It is called Ati CrossFire. You will have a wait a bit.

you will never be able to run 2 of them on a sli board but if you get a mobo with an ati xpress 200 chipset then you will.

I doubt it will be a whole different card, so you can probably just get the mobo when it comes out. Another thing to consider is PS 3.0. ATI cards dont got it yet, and all of the new games have it, so right now your not getting your moneys worth. If i were you i would get SLI 6800GTs or if you love ATI wait for the R520 to come out, it will have PS3.0. the X850XT is a great card and it really sucks that all of the ATI users who bought it got screwed later.
