View Full Version : Dual video cards?
03-25-2001, 02:22 AM
I have an Atlon K7 600mhz / FIC SD11 based system and I would like to add an additional AGP video card to the system. If it is possible the reason I'd like to have both cards in is so that I can switch depending on the situation since one card is of much higher resolution quality, etc. Can this be done and if so could you lead me to a website that might offer
specific instructions for my motherboard. BTW the cards are a 3D savage4(PCI) and a new ATI(Athlon-Micro) Radeon LE which is th AGP card. Thanks

If the idea is to switch back and forth between the two, rather than using both as a dual monitor setup, I doubt if it could be done, at least not without a lot of trouble...

Actually at first I was hoping to be able to switch then I kinda got going on the double monitor approach, but the problem right now is that the AGP connector on my SD11 acts like it's dead. I've tried turning on the primary AGP in the BIOS and that doesn't do it. I removed the PCI card and it's drivers and put the AGP in and no go, not even a monitor read of the boot/bios etc. Any thoughts?
