Graphics Cards Answered

Hey i have a slight problem. im usually the pro with computers but these cards bother me. i has a P.O.S graphics card with not crossfire or anything good (i got it just to use my computer till i saved up for good one) the i have this $300 card with just about everything. i was wondering if i could use one card for one monitor and one card for another. i dont think i can but im hoping.

If your motherboard can accommodate both cards and your PSU has enough power to support them both... then yes you can have both cards installed and have each one running a different monitor. Chances are your new $300 card has multiple DVI ports on it and can run 2 monitors at once already. So there is no point is wasting power on a second card when the newer one can handle it all.
