Default Re: nvidia/crossfire question

your friend was doing something wrong because you can run an nvidia card on a crossfire board, and vice versa you can run an ATI card on a sli board
thats if we are talking about single cards and not 2 cards.

then you owuld have to stick to SLI for Nvidia and Crossfire for ATI, unless you can find some kinds of hacked drivers for your board
