Question would an x850xt work with P6n sli-fi

hey guys.
i have a saphhirex850xt, and when get my new system which will include an msi p6n sli-fi, i want to stick that card into my system. would it work fine, considering that the gpu is ati based and the mobo is nvidia based(i think)?? i am just using that card for a couple of months, and then upgrade to a 8800gts when i have the money.

and btw, i am building one, hopefully with a e6320.

thanks a lot

I don't see why not...as long as the X850XT is PCI-E and not AGP.

yeah it should work. And i have a question, does your x850xt make a really annoying high pitched sound whenever the fan is spinning? because mine does and that why im replacing it lol.

ya it does actually, thats why i dont use it anymore and use my 7900gs, but i am planning to use it for my new build for a while. i am going to replace the HSF with probably the artic silencer 5 or zalman. but then, when i think of it, those hsf cost a lot of money compared to what i paid for the card, which was about 130$ when i got it.

yea, the mobo wouldnt look to see if it was a nvidia or ati card, so anything would work, just if its pci-e.
