Default ATI Crossfire Motherboards Question?

so I'm really taking a liking in the ASUS P5W DH...and it says it is a ATI Crossfire ready motherboard...this has to do with having dual video cards right?...I do'nt really have the money for Dual video cards and don't think I need them....ALSO my main question it a bad Idea to use a Nvidia GeForce video card with this motherboard (like the XFX 7950GT)...because I really like NVIDIA better than ATI...any help wouldb e very usefull

really like the accessories with this Motherboard...but wasn't sure if I can use a NVIDIA card...or if I can...but it isn't a good idea

planning on getting a Core 2 E6600 2.44ghz,

XFX 7950GT Nvidia Card

any hints would be perfect

thanks everyone

merry Christmas!!
