    I just finished building my new rig and had a few concerns trying to setup a 3 screen system. Was working fine in my old rig with 2 ATI cards, but unfortunately I couldn't keep my AGP card and had to switch to a PCIE card. So I purchased a Gforce 9500 GT PCIE and was able to recuperate my old Radeon 9250 PCI card. Unfortunately, when I install the cards in the system and load on Peg setup, Windows freezes, so I tried loading on PCI and setup my multiscreen this way. I was unable to get the Pegs to work. Windows indicates that it has a driver problem running the PCIE screens when ATI driver is running the system and vice versa when I get the PCIE card to function on PEG setup by disabling the PCI card in safe mode, and rebooting, PCI card gets a driver related problem and can only function in 4 bit with awful color problem. And worse on this setup, when I reboot, Windows XP(home) freezes.

    Is there something I can do, or do I have to get a same manufacturer card in the pci slot as my PCIE that will run on the same drivers??
