Got a 1950xtx and an 1950 crossfire edition shipping on tuesday, can't wait... :D

Edit: looks like you have to have crossfire disabled to do this since you need to have the primary outputs of both cards enabled...oh well, just enable it to play games I guess.

Today, 7im, is Shabbos, the Jewish day of rest. That means I don't work, I don't get in a car, I don't fucking ride in a car, I don't pick up the phone, I don't turn on the oven, and I sure as shit DON'T FUCKING READ! SHOMER SHABBOS!

OK so I'm not up on dual GPU motherboards....

Could I buy an SLI board and throw 2 ATI vid cards in there? Providing I didn't want to play games, just fold. Since it doesn't appear to use CF.

You won't need to "disable" SLI, because you'll never have an SLI option. On the older motherboards, you have a card that lets you choose the PCIe lane configuration, you'll want to choose the x8,x8 config which may actually be marked as SLI on the card.

"x8,x8"

or x16,x16 ?

Depends on the board, the first nForce4 SLIs they were limited on the amount of PCIe lanes, so you had to configure the two slots x8,x8. On the newer SLI boards, they have full bandwidth x16, x16 lanes. If you go with a 975 board, you'll only get x8,x8.

@ 8x you only loose a few seconds or so frame time.

@ 4x it's a big hit

Mike Houston has a thread on this over at offical forums

It supports a p4 EE 840XE. Doesn't that have two processors and two HT processors?
