Using both Onboard AND PCI-e graphics?

I want to use both the onboard VMA graphics on my G33 chipset in my Shuttle G33G5 as well as a PCi-E graphics card (Sapphire HD3450 if that makes a difference). I know that to switch between the two i need to change the jumpers between the two.

Well technically the documentation says to change between HDMI and PCI-e, but if I change jumper settings from HDMI to PCI-e, there is no HDMI OR VGA from the onboard graphics.

Is there any answer to this? Or is it a total dichotomy? I have to choose between the two? Like choosing between mum and dad, but more painful :( 

Thanks in advance guys and girls

As far as I know, you can`t use both, hence the jumper.

Why on earth would you want to use both?

I guess yeah now thinking about how the jumper functions that was a silly Q. But it was just that the HD3450 has only two DVIs and now VGA and I use 1 VGA and 1 DVI monitor. Thankfully the VGA monitor can take a digital signal via the VGA and a DVi to VGA adaptor.

so, problem solved a I guess. And sorry for asking a silly question. Cheers guys
