Thread: 2 Video Cards

  1. #1
    Would it boost performance if you had to video cards in your system? Like 1 psi and 1 agp... or 2 apg if thats possible.

    the only benefit of having two would be that you can plug in two monitors to the computer...or 2 monitor and 2 tv's. With two monitors you could play your game on one of them and have msn messenger, and website, email etc on your other screen as you play. no performance boost.

    no you couls use both at once in most cases. some video cards dont like to be paired up with certain other video cards...in which case i think only the agp card would work, or if they were both pci then im not sure what would happen. its usually a good idea to pair up two cards by the same company (ie nvidia and nvidia, or ati and ati) or better yet with the same GPU.
