The patch can be found here:

I've searched on other sites, but no one seems to have tested it unfortunately. Maybe someone on this forum that has an ATI crossfire mobo would be curious to see if it really works... I know I would be

That would be far more intresting, since there are a lot of NF4 SLI mobos out there.

I would love to see SLI on that Crossfire board, from what I have heard that DFI crossfire is to die for. Apparently it is a wonderful overclocker!

I heard something about my mobo being capable of using 2 graphics cards, nvidia and ati but I think its glitchy, and unstable If you want i could try it but would there be a possibility i would fry my mobo using 2 Ati x800gto's?. if not i could try.I also have to change bios, jumpers etc.If it works would be cool.

I have a CrossFire capable 975x mobo and a single 7900GTX, somebody send me another 7900GTX and I'll be happy to test this out for you

EDIT/// That picture on the bottom shows SLI running on a Gigabyte 975x mobo

actually i have a question, if I stuck 2 7900GTXs in but didnt use SLI what would happen? I know some mobos support multiple GPUs but in a non-SLI/CrossFire fashion (IE: You could just stick 2 6600GTs in and they would work but not in SLI) I've always wondered how that works.

The sli bridge just ensures a more stable, equal usage of both cards.You can use two cards in an sli board and if you dont use a bridge then say only 90% of card 1 will be utilized but only 30% of card 2 will be used theres still an increase in performance but not as high when you use an SLI bridge.
imagine a cicuit with sli is a circuit in series, all data goes through both cards, without brige cards are in parrallel data splits up.

I heard somewhere that nvidia disabled the patch in newer driver versions
