If I put 2 VGAs in a motherboard that has two PCIe x16 slot (so I dont have to user risers or anything strange) and I put them in corssfire.

Can I disable the crossfire so I can mine with each VGA individually, so I get to mine with 2 VGA's without using any dummy?

Is this possible?

that is one weird mom that you have.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

it would be very hard to put two VGAs in a mother.

no crossfire.  switch monitor plug to enable one after you start mining on the other if you don't have dummy plug

Why do you not recomend CF? I have 2x HD5870 in CF and fair performance 2x 380MH/s without dummyplugs. I can mine with each card separately.
