The board has to be officially SLI certified to support SLI. Otherwise you have to hope hacked drivers have unlocked SLI for your board. Your board isn't officially supported, so you would need to use hacked drivers if they are available.

You can do PhysX, which is probably better suited. Your second PCI-E x16 slot only runs at x4 and is generation 1, so the limited bandwidth would not allow you to get the full benefit out of an SLI or Crossfire setup.

toyota your right lol I play no games that use phsx ok mafia II and BulletStorm ,, does UT3 engine have phsyx ,,,lol
Mafia 2 does but Bulletstorm does not use hardware physx. the standard UT3 game does not have hardware physx either. there is a map pack that you can download that just adds a couple of physx features to a few standard UT3 maps. its more of a little tech demo than anything else though.

You can have your crossfire board use this SLi hack and use 2 Nvidia cards.
It worked for my motherboard.

Can't use SLI hack with Nvidia's newest drivers. You have to use the old ones like 260.99 and older.

The websites that hosted the SLI hack patch have been taken down.

Nvidia doesn't want you to use SLI hack.
