Let me start off by telling you my hardware:

- MSI 790FX-GD70
info: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130223

Graphics Cards
- Galaxy GTS 250(x2)
info: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814162069&Tpk=galaxy%20gts%20250

Because this motherboard has an AMD chipset, I don't know if I can use these NVIDIA chipset graphics cards for SLI. I have one of the two cards working perfectly alone. Would using two of them in SLI change that? Any feedback is much appreciated!

I forgot to mention that the motherboard does support CrossfireX, but I don't know whether it will support both CrossfireX (ATI) and SLI (NVIDIA)

It does not support SLI so it won't work.

I figured as much. I just wanted to make sure. Thanks much!

I just thought you should know that I got this to work a few weeks ago. It was a fairly easy fix, using a patch called HyperSLI. I have had zero problems with this so far using the hardware I mentioned above. The patch can be found here if anyone is interested. http://www.overclock.net/t/670810/howto-sli-on-a-non-sli-motherboard-gtx5xx-compatible-1-0-final-released
