Hello,
So here is the thing, I actualy have an Asus HD 5450 Silent instaled on the PCI express of my mainboard (MSI G41M-P28).
The Asus card only have 1 VGA slot, and I need a total of 3 so I can install 2 more monitors, (already have the monitors).

I know that the ATI Radeon 7500 has 2 VGA slots, so I was wondering : Is it possible to instal the ATI Radeon 7500 on one of the PCI slots that I have left on the mainboard, and have both cards working or is it impossible ?

I'm actualy using :
Windows 7 Entreprise
Pentium Dual-Core CPU E5800 @3.20GHz
With 4.00 Go of RAM

Thank you for your help.

I already have 3 slot in my Asus card (1 VGA, 1 DVI & 1 HDMI)
I Have a DVI VGA converter, but I can't get the full resolution of the monitor, the monitor is 1600x900 and with the converter I only get 1440x900, that is way I'm asking if I could add the ATI Radeon 7500 (2 VGA slots), so I could have 3 DIRECT VGA slots, with no converters or what so ever

you need to use DVI to get the max res. out of the card, or hdmi

Are you duplicating or extending the display?

Do all of the monitors have the same native resolution?

I'm looking for extending, sorry I forgot to mention it in my first post.

the 3 monitors are the same :
Acer P206HV 20'' with 1600x900 recommended resolution, this model only have VGA.

I have one of them pluged right now on a VGA slot and it looks great, resolution is 1600x900 as recommended.
The second one is plug on the DVI slot of my ASUS HD 5450, with a DVI to VGA adapter, and I can't get the 1600x900 resolution, it's either 1440x900 or 1600x1200, and the monitor doesn't support the 1600x1200.

That's why I want to know if the ATI radeon 7500 would work with my actual system, and would I be able to expend my desktop on the 3 monitors ?

The DVI to VGA adapter should work.Try using just that monitor with the adapter.

I'm not sure if you can mix cards like that.I've heard of that working but i'm not sure on it.
