Using 2 Video Cards?

I have access to a PCI video card (PNY 256 mb) that is a little better than the one I have currently installed (Radeon 9200 ... 128 mb).

I do a bit of video editing & will be running 2 VGA monitors off the PNY card. I was thinking I might try using the S-Video OUT of the Radeon as well.

Can I use both cards? Will this configuration result in an improvement or a slowdown?

Yes and no.

You have to make sure the video card driver/software is compatible. Depending on your core system, you may not see any improvements since the computer now needs to power and compute the second card.

That's what I was thinking too.

Thanks Hot
