SLi is for nvidia cards and Crossfire is for ATI (radeon) cards... you can't mix the 2, sorry.

also, to add, they have to be the same model as well> you could not sli an 8800gt with a 9600gt, you would have to have another 8800gt (does not have to be the same brand, or specs, but if it were different specs, both cards would run at the lower speed.)
