Wow, I'm dumb. Nevermind, you have the card already.
Answer: No. Your chipset is nVidia SLi not CrossFire so you can only go single GPU or SLi. Sorry.
But, for $200 I'd get:
Sapphire X1300XTx2

from what i heard i can update my bios to do that.. so yes crossfire is possible smart one.. and yes you obviously dont know what your talking about.. go back to messing with your little pc!

actually he's right. You can't run crossfire with that motherboard. I has to have an ati chipset. Yes, people have done it before, but you have to mod drivers and stuff, and it would still be buggy, so it's not really worth it (if you could get it working at all)

also, dual x1300s wouldn't be the best cost/performance ratio. you'd be better off just getting a single better card

ok well i found a geforce 8800gts by xfx for 399$$$$$ so i think ill stick to nvidia seeing how they always end up with the better and faster card, you ati owners know dang well what a monster nvidia had created and you wont see anything close to that good from ati anytime soon.. the best think ati ever created was the 9600 which crushed nvidia this will be the end of the gpu wars!

Lol. You may believe what you want. I'm a hard-core ATI fan due to the superior image rendering. I must say the 8800 looks very good though. You might consider an Opty upgrade just to ease the bottleneck.
