You can, it's just pretty pointless to get a Crossfire board and put nVidia cards on it

get a sli one if you are going with a nvidia card, then in a couple months you can put in the other card.

The board uses an ATI chipset that uses ATI's Crossfire... If you are planning on using NVIDIA cards in SLI, It won't work on this board.

well i just e-mailed my friend so hopefully he says he will buy my amd athlon 64 3500+, 2gb for $200.

I told him i spent $200 on the ram and $200 on the cpu cause i did.

If i get $200 from him for that i will upgrade to am2 cause i didn't order a board yet.
