Default Will this work?

I planning on buying an Asus A8N-SLI Premium MB pretty soon... I would also like to get an ATI graphics card... On the ATI webpage for crossfire, it lists Asus as a "Motherboard partner"... However, i cant find anything anywhere, that says which Asus MBs will support Crossfire... so my question is, will the Asus A8N-SLI Premium support crossfire tech or will it only support dual Nvidia cards? If not, which Asus MBs support crossfire?

SLi is Nvidia-specific. That means that no ATi cards can be used in SLI.

ATI is coming out with Crossfire which is similar in the sense that it uses 2 vid cards together, but still totally different than SLI. SLI motherboards dont support Crossfire, but they still support ATi vid cards.

Crossfire mobos havent been released to the general public, yet (as far as I know).

That should clear things up.

Asus motherboard's for AMD are not very good either, in fact they suck. DFI, MSI and Abit are all other good ones worth looking at.
