  1. I wondering if i can use 2 videocard on my computer, one PCI and one AGP. I was planning on using the pci for a tv tuner so i can record tv shows and for AGP, I planning on using it on my monitor to play games. My current videocard is an AIW 9600 that is connected to both my TV and computer monitor. Thanks for any help you can offer

    I also have this ATI Output adapter that i can use.

    eazy.. please refrain from posting rubbish.

    You can use several video cards no problem. AGP and PCI mixed or just several PCI. There may be some driver/card compatibility issues, but all newer hardware should work. When in doubt, get a Matrox as the second card - they have a long history of all kinds of multi-support.

    You already have TV input and output, so any AGP video card will do. Some younger members may be able to tell you what is the latest and greatest for gaming.
