Graphics Card Advice...

  Hearst555 15:06 30 Dec 06


I've been thinking of purchasing the ASUS P5B Deluxe motherboard and I need some advice on the graphics card that I should buy with it. I was interested in buying the ASUS (Nvidia) 512MB 7600GS Silent PCI-Express graphics card but when I read the full specifications of the motherboard it says that it takes advantage of ATi's Crossfire technology. Personally I'm not much of a PC gamer, I tend to use my computer for photoshop work instead so I don't see myself using the dual graphics card facility. The main question is that would the motherboard still work with a Nvidia graphics card or do I have to stick buying an ATi card with the motherboard? Any advice would be appreciated - thanks.

If the motherboard is setup for Crossfire then you can still use an Nvidia card in it but only one. You cannot use 2 Nvidia graphics cards as Crossfire is only for ATI.
I hope that answers your question.
