    Wondering if you can use an AGP Video (3D Phanton XP-3800) card with an PCI
    VGA (3D Phantom XP-PCI2800) video card too run Mulpile monitors?

    Operating System: WINXP
    CPU: 2.5 AMD Chip
    Motherboard: K-7 Triton GA-7VT600 via KT600 chipset
    AGP VGAVideo card: AGP Video 3D Phanton XP-3800 with 64-bit 32 MB SDRAM
    PCI VGA Video card: PCI VGA 3D Phantom XP-PCI2800 SIS-305 PCI 32MB

    Will this cause conflicts or damage to said cards?

    Thanks in Advance and much appreciated!

  2. Yes, it's do-able -- don't know why anyone would think it would cause
    "damage" nor what sort of "damage" someone could think it might cause --
    but in many cases the AGP card has to be the primary one; this is often
    set in the BIOS *and* in XP as well. Sorry, I don't have that m/b so I
    can't tell you how to set the preference in the BIOS for which video
    card to use, but maybe you have your own documentation on it.
