    OK first of all see my equipment below:

    • CPU- AMD Dual Core 5600
    • MB - ASUS M2N4-SLI
    • Memory - 4GB DDR2
    • GPU - NVidia GForce 9800 GTX+
    • Monitors - 2X Samsung 943BWX

    Here is my question; I have another PCI-E Video Card (GeForce 8500 GT) and would like to use it in my system to power my 42" Plasma TV (on occasion for movies etc). I have 2 16X PCI-E slots (one empty). SLI disabled. Is it possible to run these two GPU on the same system and - in essence - run a 3 monitor system?

    Thanks in advance for your help.
