2 different tuner cards in 1 computer

I just installed a Haupauge 2250 card in my HTPC. Works well (aside from the fact I have had to install it 3 times in 2 weeks, but that is another issue).

Since Vista can support up to 4 tuners, I was wanting to put in an old PCI card (Some ATI All in Wonder deal) until I can afford another dual tuner card. I did not realize how much stuff I wanted to record, and at times need more than the 2 channels the 2250 provides.
I know the ATI card works (it installed automatically in Vista when I had it on another computer).

Will there be any kind of conflict with having 2 different brands of tuner cards installed? The ATI one is a NTSC tuner only, which is fine (I am getting signal from cable).
Is it just a matter of installing the card, letting Vista install it then setting up the tuner in media center?

With the way Windoze is, it could work it could not. But there is only one way to find out. You just gotta plug 'n "pray" (=
