OS : Either XP or Win7
Mobo: Asus A8N32 SLI
GPU 1 : HD3870
GPU 2 : 9600GSO
This is so that I can use 4 monitors on my PC simultaneously.
I have the Asus A8N32 SLI board which is the SKT 939 motherboard that supports SLI with both lanes @ x16 speeds.
I understand that with XP and Win7, you can use 2 different Video cards with different drivers.
I acknowledge that I will not be doing anything Crossfire or SLI...I just want the cards to run simultaneously.
However, from my research on the web, I have no been able to clarify if both graphics cards will run in x16 if you have a capable motherboard.
Any useful help is appreciated
PS. I really wanted to get another HD3870 to Crossfire on the mobo but apparently all of the hacks for the nforce4 chipsets are unstable. With no 9600GSO in the scene ATM, I just want to make this work and hang in there
PPS. What I really wanted was a 3870X2 with the 4 DVI ports but they've discontinued 'em and I can't find any. XP
