I have a workstation with the i815 chipset, video on board. I also have a Rage 128 AGP card. Is it possible to combine these two video cards into twinview?

Thanks

At home I'm planning on getting me a Leadtek Winfast MC DH Pro. 2 vid out and TV-out. It should be better then the matrox (esp. on 3D).

I have Win2000pro SP1 and it looks as if it would do it, never tried it 'tho.

No, by default the I815 onboard video is DISABLED whenever an APG card is present. AGP is a direct port from the CPU, not a bus, only one device can be used per unit. That is the same reason you don't see 2 AGP slots on a board.

Does an AGP and PCI combination work under 2000?

I'll tell you as soon as you send me a copy of Win2K. I don't own one. I can tell you that it should. Whether should translates into reality is a question for someone else!
