    I have a mobo with two PCIe slots. Can I connect one for vga out and the other one for svideo out?

    My Primary one and Nvidia 9500gt doesn't have its svideo working. I thought I might add an NVida 8600 that DOES have svideo working to correct this.

    Is this connection possible?

    My machine doesn't have an agp slot. Can I buy a video card with an old fashioned pci slot and run video out through it.

    You can have multiple video cards installed. I've used two cards to support 3 or 4 monitors in the past. For best results, you should use cards of the same chipset brand (ie: ATI or nVidia). Having said that, I've not used a second card just for S-Video output. But I don't see why it wouldn't work
