    I'm currently looking at a computer, considering purchasing it.
    It has an ASUS A8N32-SLI Deluxe Socket 939 NVIDIA nForce SPP 100 ATX AMD motherboard, and also, according to the builder, a Sapphire Radeon X1900XTX 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 VIVO PCI Express x16 video card.

    Now, I've also been told that the Radeon video card couldn't work in the motherboard with an nVidia chipset.

    So, I'd kind of like to know, can the aforementioned video card work with the aforementioned motherboard?

    I'm guessing that ATI gpu cards are not SLI compatable, they have a thing called crossfire, could be wrong though.

    Can't imagine who told you that. ATi video card can work on any mobo...if you are going to use 2 of them for SLi they should be matched is all.

    I think that was my own idea, SLI is nvidia after all, how about running nvdia cards with crossfire does that work?

    That why i thought i better put that disclamer in there;)
