Two video cards...

    Good morning,

    I am putting together a new system that will be dual-booting Win 3.1 and XP.
    Now I got everything to work so far with a GeForce 6600GT card, but it is
    PCI-Express format and thus unrecognizeable in Win 3.1. There are no Win
    3.1 drivers for it, so I am stuck in 16 colors.

    My question is, is is possible to install a second PCI video card (one that
    has Win 3.1 drivers) alongside the GeForce, and just plug the monitor into
    whichever one I am using?

    Basically, I would use the GeForce under XP for gaming and the other one
    under 3.1 for my regular work, but I want to get more than 16 colors and the
    stock SVGA drivers aren't working.

    Many thanks in advance for any help!

    Sure, just make sure you have the PCI selected as the primary adapter in
    bios. This will have no adverse effect to your XP.
