thinking of buying - Page 2

post #11 of 23
You can't run 2 at once and those mobos with both agp and pcie support mostly perform crappy and you cant be sure that your agp card will run on them cos they are not compatible with most of the newer cards(atleast not tested). If i were you i'd pick a pcie one, sooner or later you'll end up changing your agp vga with a pcie one.

Yes this is correct i have the ASROCK board as in my sig below and yes you can use an AGP card and PCI-E cards at the same tim to provide more display screens..The cards won work together in games though..and the technology for both AGP and PCI-E being on the same board is called AGI. The AGP slot is compatible with all 4x and 8x cards so whoever said its not compatible is mistaken. Runnig a 6800 in AGP and another in PCI-E wont make your games run faster as this is not an SLI or CROSSFIRE board but by having a GPU in AGP and another in PCI-E you can have surround display.

My understanding is that an application will only support 1 GPU at a time. Is this correct ?

if u read ENTERPRISE1701 post correctly you would have noticed that he said they will not work together, i presume he means they will just give a mirrored imaged to each monitor so that you can run more than 2 monitors, but when it comes to games and so on i presume only one of the graphics card will run it as it does no have the technology to work together

having 2 gfx cards just to have multiple displays really isn't necessary unless you need the displays for work or something like that. any single card can output to 2 different monitors so unless you need 3 or more monitors you're better off just using a single card.

if you are talking crossfire or sli then that it a totally different story. the 2 cards work together to give you better graphics performance in games. but once again you are limited to 1-2 displays.

your best bet is to get a pcie board and a pcie card. if you eventually want to get 2 6800GT's then get a sli board so you'll have that option in the future.

note - many sli boards are capable of running dual pcie gfx cards in a non-sli setup so you can run multiple monitors.
