I know how dumb this question may sound but is it possible to have a PCI 5500 & a AGP 5600 work together on one monitor? like a Dual Video Card thing?

No. Only SLI will allow you to do that. I did had this old Diamon Graphics video booster a while back (worked the same as ATi's SLI varient). But it didn't do any good.

I know it didn't really answer the question, but I figured I would post it anyway incase someone happened across this thread looking for dual monitors.

SLI - no.

Crossfire - no clue, You might.

I don't know, it was the same idea as crossfire. Started by Diamon Multimedia. Didn't work. It was a PCI add-in card that connectd to your video card with a special 15-pin vga cable on the outside of the case.

PS i dont know to much about ATi's CrossFire but they connect the two x800/x850 cards buy a cord that looks like a VGA to both cards and make it into one. and no idea on SLi -(sounds Corney) Lol
