I need a second GPU that must be PCI-X (extended) and not PCI-E (express).
I have on my motherboard two PCI express slots, one has the Quadro FX540 and the other is using a PCIexpress video editing card. So I cant use two PCI-E cards. I have plenty of free PCI-X slots, and one PCI slot that is in use by my audio card.
Whats a guy to do with this problem???? I dont see any thing on the market for me. I also need dual monitor supprot from this hypothetical PCI-X card.

as far as i know, pci-x is backwards compatible with pci.
then, you can use an average pci video card...

the Parhelia DL256 is great for 30" LCDs :)  also good for dual monitor.

The Matrox QID Pro is the king of PCI-X with quad monitor. both cards can sit in a PCI-X or PCI sl0t, workstation and desktop(speaking from personal experience).
