Dual Graphics Card Query

hey guys
i have an AMD motherboard that's nearly ready to put in my new computer and it has 2 Graphics Cards slots, and i am going to buy an ATI graphics card for the motherboard as i know ATI works well with AMD, however i have a spare Nvidia Geforce graphics card lying a round that is relatively decent spec, i am just wondering whether having 2 completely different graphics card would give me any computability issues?

Motherboard : Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3
NVidia Graphics card : NVIDIA Geforce 9500 GT
ATI Graphics card: ATI Radeon HD 6870 1GB GDDR5

all help is much appreciated
thanks guys
Sam

  1. While it is POSSIBLE to get to cards with different drivers working, it is not a usually a recommended way to go. If you already have an nvidia card, you may want to consider another nvidia card so you can use the same driver set.
  2. What do you plan to have the 9500GT doing? Unless you are running 3 or 4 screens its just going to sit there using up power.

    Windows 7 permits you to have multiple graphics drivers so you could do it, it just might be a bit glitchier than normal.
