Only if the applications displaying on each one run out of memory or CPU cores (multitasking) working at the same time.

I'm running FSX on a mobo w/only one pcie slot. I had upgraded from the hd 2400 agp to a hd 4890 and I'm happy, but....... now I have this xtra card that I can put to good use if it does'nt hurt. I would hate it if it slowed down my 4890! You still think it's ok?????

LOL

Most boards don't have both agp and pci-e and those that do don't support the use of both at once with the exception of one but only a few were made. So the answer is no you can't use the 2400 pro agp and your 4890 pci-e in the same box at once.

Thanks nforce, that makes sense and saves a lot of time. I should have looked at the board before I asked the dumb question!!!

The only dumb question is one that isn't asked. Your welcome :)
