Subject: Re: [PEDA] Good Dual head video card combination for Protel.


| Thanks for the information Darryl. The Microsoft document states that the
| primary adapter must be in PCI slot 0 or 1. The problem is that I'd prefer
| to get an AGP adapter, and the integrated video is also AGP, so I need to
| know if it's possible to run two AGP adapters at the same time. I suspect
| that it isn't. In answer to your question about why don't I get an
| inexpensive card, I have a couple of younger relatives that would appreciate
| the ability to play games at 'max performance' (this is for my PC at home,
| not at work).
|
| Thanks again.
| Steve.
