Salutations :-)

This question is about an older system I'm keeping til i save up for my dream board.

Was there every a way to make TWO similar nVidia graphics cards work in tandem? I swear I had a nVidia GeForce (AGP) and ATI Radeon (PCI) working as one, however, two nVidia Cards won't work with each other????

The cards I have in mind are:
EVGA nVidia GeForce 6200 512MB VGA/DVI/TV-out AGP DDR2
EVGA 512-P1-N402-LR GeForce 6200 512MB 64-bit DDR2 PCI 2.1

They are the same card except for slot type.

Depends :) 
First: if, by tandem, you mean SLI or anything close, just forget. GPU has to support it, and lowest GF6xxx supporting it was 6600.
Second: if you mean using display output from both cards, it s perfectly doable, easily in Windows 7, and probably easily in Windows XP. This is the one and the only way it may work.
Third: don't swear. It's bad habit.
Fourth: a guy once brought to me Socket A mobo with Pentium 3 squeezed into it, and he was swearing that this was working an hour ago. Sorry, no way.

Thanks for your answer. Sorry about taking so long to say thanks, I just dont get online anymore! bless you!

-Poor Guy, he should have tried the Socket 370 with Athlon CPU with dual AGP video slots and Windows 6. Its running great for me. O:-)
