If it supports Crossfire, then no, it will not. For now, only nVidia chipsets (nForce) support SLI.

In the future, the Intel 975X chipset may support SLI, so thats why Abit threw in the bridge.

You could run both of the cards, but they will not allow you to enable SLI mode. I.E. you can put in 2 cards and run 4 monitors off of them if you want, but you will not be able to get the two cards to run together in games.

Good idea. Those will destroy the 7950's anyway.
