  1. XFX Radeon HD 5830 1GB PCIe DDR5
    EVGA 896-P3-1170-AR GeForce GTX 275 896MB

    Can this be done? I have no experience with Sli, so any information will be helpful.

    (maybe I am thinking of crossfire? ...not sure)

    No, this will not work, unless you have a Lucid Hydra motherboard, which you don't.

    If you want you can use the gtx 275 for PhysX, which will help out in some games
