I was thinking about getting a new motherboard and I found this one: ASUS M4N98TD EVO AM3 NVIDIA nForce 980a SLI ATX AMD Motherboard (along with a new Phenom 1090T). I only run ATI cards on my builds and was thinking about crossfiring my two Sapphire 6770's, would this be at all possible with this board even though its advertised for Nvidia? I'm thinking it's just a way Nvidia get their name out more, but I'm not too sure.

that board isnt just nvidia branded, it has an nvidia chipset. it can only be used for SLI, not CF. boards with AMD chipsets such as 890fx or 990 fx will work with CF and SLI if you are willing to do tweaking although SLI isnt officially supported
