What card will work with my 8800 GT on windows 7?

I have a BFG 8800 gt. I would like to add a third or fourth monitor, but my motherboard only has one PCI-E slot which is already taken. I want to pick up a PCI card so I can run three or four monitor, but I've read that windows 7 has some issues with running multiple video cards when they are different cards or use different drivers. Does anyone know what PCI card I can pick up that will allow me run 3 or 4 monitors without any issues?

Thanks

  1. pick up a pci standard Nvidia video card. EvGa makes a 9400gt with 1GB ddr2 with dual outs. DVI and VGA. here is the link. Stay with a Nvidia card that is close to the series you have so that Aero is supported fully in Win 7.

  4. I don't think an ATI PCI card would mix well on windows 7 with my Nvidia 8800 GT. Any other PCI Nvidia sugestions that will run with my 8800 GT. Please note I don't game with my PC and I would like to keep it on the inexpensive side.
  5. Look for the cheapest 8400gs
  6. Also, Windows 7 supports multiple video card drivers, I am currently running a 4870 1GB with an 8800GT for PhysX in Batman.
  7. Nice, so 7 does not suffer from the issues with Vista and multiple video card drivers?
  8. Correct, they resolved whatever had broken this in Vista.
