Crosshair IV Formula AM3 AMD 890FX and multiple GPU's

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I have seen some people running different video cards on the same mobo for different purposes. I saw a new nvidia 460 that is 1080p wireless. Could I run my 2 5770 in crossfire at 16x for my primary display, but also put in the 460 for a wireless setup to another monitor for movie watching in another room? Would I need to get the extreme edition to cross pollinate brands/models or is that only to combine them for a better overall performance with the lucid chip?

Well first off, if you run three cards it's going to drop to x16/x8/x8. Secondly, the Hydra chip is only needed if you want to combine them. I don't know how that 460 you're talking about works, but since you don't actually want to use them together, it should work fine.
