Hello,
im planning to use my pc to stream to 4 monitors..

i have Geforce nvidia 6200 PCI-EXPRESS installed on my pc..
i bought Geforce nvidia 8400gs PCI (Not express) ...

When ever i try to install my drivers for the 8400 from the Disc came with, i see that my 6200 getting same driver some how...
so i did reinstall the drivers Again for the 8400 , but i get a yellow ( ! ) in my hardware devices list , means it doesnt work ..

i just cant get them work 2gether ... could it be that both cards get the same Driver files name ?!
notice that i tried the driver file it self without the Nvidia control panel ..

any idea what to do ? do i have to install old drivers for the 6200 and then 8400 ?

and as i see both cards has the same drivers from nvidia website ... thats bad i guess :X, right ?

Thanks,,,

Running four monitors on such weak cards is not a wise thing to do, but all NVIDIA cards from 6000 series use the same drivers.
