3 Monitors, 2 different cards

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, what do I need to do in order to utilize 3 monitors with 2 different video cards? Currently I have 2 monitors connected to my GTX 560 but I want to use my 3rd monitor with a geforce 9400. I tried putting the 9400 in a pcie slot and when I booted up, it tried to install drivers for it but failed and ultimately screwed up my display and I had to System Restore.

The 9400 uses the same drivers as the 560, you don't need a special driver for it. Also, it can work with the default driver provided with Windows just fine.
