Apparently, that's not the case after all.
I took the plunge and bought myself a used HD6670 card despite the earlier official reply from the MSI tech.
To my pleasant surprise, everything worked as I had hoped for!
I do have to disable Dual Graphics (Crossfire) for it, but that's a simple matter of toggling a seletion in the AMD Vision Center. So I leave Dual Graphics enabled until whenever I want to watch 3D movies.
This workaround not only saves me a needless (and expensive) upgrade to a 3D AVR, but also gives an added boost to my HTPC's graphics performances through the Dual Graphics feature.
A 2-in-1 solution at minimal cost! I can't ask for more.
Still this episode does confirm my suspicion that the MSI mobo will not allow a non-AMD Dual Graphics compatible card to work this way (since I already tried a Nvidia card with no success).
It also confirms what I feel about the MSI tech support - that they don't really bother with the answers they give (I got this feeling when I probed them further with questions about the bios and received very lazy answers).
I'm glad I trusted my own reasoning using information from various online sources such as this.
So thanks for creating this forum and for all the helpful replies, renethx.
