    I am setting up a new HP computer for dual monitors
    I want to installed a3DFuxion GForce MX4000 PCI graphics card and use the CD card for the primary monitor and the stock (on motherboard) card for the secondary monitor.
    Both monitors are VGA

    Will this work?
    The 3D Fuzion card requires me to uninstall the current display driver using Add/remove programs. the current system uses ATI video. I am hesitant to uninstall the current video unless I am sure the new setup will work.
    any help is appreciated

    I think that's going to depend on how the MB graphics controller is handled by the BIOS. I believe some will be automatically disabled if you have a second video card.

    I don't think the PCI bus is the best choice for video, doesn't that machine have an AGP slot?
