    I have a Biostar 945P-A7A motherboard and I would like to know if I can use the ATI Radeon X1600 Pro / 512MB DDR2 / PCI Express / DVI / VGA / TV Out / Crossfire Ready / Video Card with it? I am not sure if my motherboard is crossfire ready. I would be grateful for an help.

    Just googled and found your MB. That VC should be fine, but you can forget crossfire unless you replace your MB.

    I will and thank you for the feedback. I emailed Tiger Direct and they weren't much help.

    Thank everyone for all their help but I really didn't want it for the crossfire aspect just compatability.

    Well you should be fine. It has 1 @ 16x PCI-E port, which is all that you need for the VC you mentioned.

    Just make sure you upgrade your PSU if it's less than 450W.
