Can I use two different video cards on same PC ? Tags: Graphics Cards Converter Monitors Graphics Last response: November 13, 2012 12:58 PM in Graphics & Displays Share dan99t November 13, 2012 8:20:57 AM I have a Dell T – 7500 workstation which came with AMD FirePro 2260 Video Card. I removed it & installed AMD FirePro 2460 Video card to run a total of 4 Monitors ( This Video Card has 4 Mini DP Port & comes with 4 Mini DP To DVI Converter Cables ) All monitors are identical. Now one of those 4 Mini DP To DVI converter cable has failed & I am left with only three functioning monitors. ( I tested everything & narrowed it down to the converter to be the culprit ) I am thinking about plugging back the original FirePro 2260 video card which will run the 4th monitor till I get the replacement converter. So my question is if those two different Video Cards will work together ? ( Yes, FirePro 2260 has DP to DVI Converter ) If yes, do I need to download two different drivers ? From AMD’s site, it seems both use same drivers. http://support.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDSupportHub.aspx http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/fire/fire-2d/Page...

Make sure you have enough power for both cards, though! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources SolvedUsing two different graphics cards in the same PC. Possible?
