Default ATI Crossfire + 9600GSO?

Am i able to get one or two ATI cards running in crossfire, then pop in another Nvidia 9600GSO or similar to run PhysX and fold and such (obviously not in SLI of course) but will the option still show in games and such?

Im also looking for an AMD motherboard under $230 AUD that has more than two PCI-Ex16 slots and the SB750 southbridge. (Full ATX needed).

The Gigabyte MA790GP-DS4H would have been perfect if not for only two PCIE slots...

See if you can find this for under $230 AUD.

Newegg.com - ASUS M3A79-T Deluxe AM2+/AM2 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

Then there are always the DFI motherboards which you can look into.

Newegg.com - 3, AM2+/AM2, AMD Motherboards, Motherboards, Computer Hardware

It'd work.. maybe get a 8500GT or something cheap..

But you need to find something with 3 or more PCI-e slots (if you want to do CrossfireX and have the PhysX Card)

Or any two CF or SLI board...

Pricing here is ridiculous. That Asus board is well over $300 AUD.
