    Yes it will no probs. That would be a nasty trick indeed, to sell us a mobo that REQUIRED 2 gfx cards to work properly. Shhhhh, don't give them any ideas. ;)

    Hey noob you woke me up from the dead to respond to an 8 month old thread?
    Hint: check the date sometimes before replying, this guy has probably already built his PC or moved off world.
