runnign ATI drivers and Nvidia drivers  

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
is it possible to run them both at the same time?

I was planning to grab an ATI card for crunching while keeping my 470s folding

would that be possible?

is there a specific order I have to install them to prevent conflicts?

I've got 470's in SLI so would that affect anything?
and in games for selecting which cards run the rendering, do I have to do anything for the game to select the 470's each time?

As long as the 470's are the 2 primary cards, you'll be fine.

The only time you'd have to change anything would be if you had a main ATI card trying to use nvidia for physX, which you need a patch for.

Just plug in the ATI GPU, install drivers, and go.
