NF200 chips don't know or care what hardware is in the slots...they simply provide more PCI-E lanes to whatever is asking for them. so yes ATI cards use the extra NF200 lanes no problem. i had 4x4890's at one time in this EVGA P55 Classified but can't for the life of me recall explicitly checking to see if they were all running at 16X. i don't have the cards now though so i can't confirm...but there is no reason for them not to be.

i also got in touch with MSI and they don't sell them separately but i am going to get a quote on a bulk purchase, just to help out the few Canucks in this situation.

I have the same board, no crossfire bridge but sli bridge. They usually come with cards though. Check what accessories the card comes with lol.

Jody raises a good point though. The likely thing is that a standard Crossfire bridge you get with a graphics card won't be compatible with the board.
