Do I need SLI to have a graphics card on PCI Express 2.0 x16 and PCI?

Hi, I am building a computer. I plan to have a graphics card (GeForce GT 430) and another graphics card (3D Banshee, yeah, I know) in the build. The GT 430 is PCI Express 2.0 x16 which I will be using. The Banshee is PCI. In order to run the cards simultaniously, do I need any fancy hookups, or SLI? Is there anything I need to do in Windows?

Oh, and before you laugh, I'm only getting the GT 430 so that it's just something there. I don't plan to do more gaming other than the occasional Team Fortress 2 :D . And as for the 3D Banshee, well, I just had it laying around, so I thought, what the heck.

  1. There's no point running the Banshee!
    The GT430 will provide all the rigs graphic functions.
    SLI requires two cards of the same model and a pcie x16x16/x8x8 capable motherboard.
