Hi guys,

Do any of you know if it's possible to have two different gfx cards (not in SLi) on one pc? It's probably impossible to have two working at the same time with all drivers loaded; but I was thinking of having two windows accounts, one for each gfx card - and having them load only the drivers for the gfx card, matching the account?

The reason I need this is, that I've got a quad-screen that needs a given gfx card - but the card doesn't do well at all with games :shock:

Any ideas or experience with this?

You could probably do this using Hardware Profiles. That link talks about laptops but it works with desktops as well. You would need to disable one of the cards in device manager for each profile. To switch between the two profiles would require a reboot.
