Default 560 Drivers.

I was going to buy a GTX 560 Ti, but i also use Linux (& BSD after the summer) as my main desktop environment.

the supported products listed here does not include the 560, is that a mistake?
http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-d...36-driver.html

also, the 500 series, can they be run in SLi under linux and BSD? do these drivers even work under BSD?

Thanks.

Doesn't seem to be a mistake. Searching Nvidia for Linux drivers for the 560 returns no results either. I would wait, they are probably working on a driver atm. The card just launched 2-3 weeks ago and the Windows drivers are still release drivers, so it will take a little time before it's fully supported on all OS'es.
