    Hello, I just recently installed a NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 video card and it works great.
    However, much to my dismay, it does not have a S-Video port, as my other card did. My other card is a NVIDIA GeForce 8300 GS. Also, I have 2 PCIx16 express ports on my motherboard.

    So ultimately, is it okay / a good idea to put both cards in my computer?
    I would only really use it for the S-Video capabilities...

    I am very tech savvy and have previous experience in opening and installing cards and other hardware (i.e., Water Cooling, PCI cards etc.)

    I hope somebody can help!
    Thanks
