  1. Hi guys, I'm new here, looks a great forum!

    Hope I can be of assistance but right now I need some of my own.

    I am running dual monitors on an ATI Radeon 7000 and have recently purchased an Nvidia quadro fx 1400 to run another 2 monitors.

    So, i found out I am having compatability issues as the new card is only running 640x480 resolution and 4 bit colour, it will not allow me to change this.

    My ATI controller now won't let me adjust my first 2 monitors and does not pick up the third.

    My chipset is the - intel p35/g33 - If i purchase another ATI Radeon 7000 will this solve my problem? is this chipset capable of running 4 monitors? well, it's running 3 now (one on the nvidia with low colour and res) so i'm sure it can? Will I need to upgrade my power supply? Am I damaging the PC if not?

    My board is a Asus P5KC if that helps..

    Thanks, James!

    Welcome James,
    I would recommend not mixing multiple video cards, so installing another Radeon 7000 is a good idea. Besides, only one video driver would be needed

    I want to get in with you guys and help as much as I can on issues I am confident with so please let me know on that..

    Just purchased another ATI Radeon 7000 from eBay so i'll let you know how I get on!

    Thanks Tmagic!
