Can I have a graphics card for games installed as well as a workstation type card, ie. one that is best for video editing and CAD?

I'm not sure this is possible.

You'd have two different sets of drivers running at the same time. It's not that having two video cards that aren't crossfired or SLi'd (but could be) would be an issue, it's that they're two different kinds of cards.

Anyone else have any input?

closest thing i can come up with is... maybe?

I know when checking a buddie's "dead" 7800gt in my box i was curious if it'd load with my 8400gt as his card turned out to work in my sstem and it did load with both cards showing (didn't try as dual monitor suppor i only have one monitor)

so its possible but i wouldn't bank on it... but if you have the cards already jsut give it a go if it works great if it doesn't then you'll have to choose one
