Does anyone know if it is possible to run two different graphics cards in the same PC? I have a ASUS K8V-SE Duluxe MB with an AGP slot occupied with an ATI Radeon 9800 PRO card running two monitors. I want to add an nvidia 5500 PCI (not express) video card to run another monitor. Does anyone know if this will work?
Some have said yes and some have said no. I have purchased a used nVidia 5500 video card on the hope that it will work. I will be receiving the card on Monday the 7th of July and will try to install it. I will post the results here so we can lay the issue to rest. Thanks again to you and all the others for your participation.
Vista has an issue where only one video driver can be installed. XP doesnt and I would be willing to bet 2k doesnt either.

Hi Guys, i want to achieve 10 separate displays using 2x Leadtek Quadro NVS 450 - $611 and 2 built-in MB display ports. Leadtek Quadro NVS 450 card uses PCIe16, i'm afraid that if i plug in the Quadro card it would disable the onboard graphic card which mean i can only achieve 8 displays. Does anyone know any MB that accept 2 graphic cards but not disable the built-in graphic card.
