I just helped my friend pick out some computer parts for his new system, it'll be here around Wednesday. He picked that graphics card, the 7950 GX2. Is there any linux support for it? If there is, does it need to have sli running? I may introduce him to linux, most likely Slackware (Slackware is my linux distro of choice, so I would be able to give him the best amount of help with Slackware, than a distro with a different package management system that I'm unfamiliar with.) Also, is there support for the ata/sata controllers in the NForce 590 SLI chipset?

Thanks in advance
