I am sure there have been topics on this in the forum, but I want to make sure before I make any purchases. I have an EVGA Geforce GTS 250 and Asus P5B Deluxe/Wifi-AP that runs just fine in my computer right now. I am running two displays. I want to add a third display but do not want to get another GTS 250 for SLI. Can I get a cheap video card like a Geforce 7200/7300/8400 as they do not require any real power to run them and it looks like it takes the same drivers as the GTS 250 in Vista x64/Windows 7 x64. I am not worried about running games and the only real thing I'd run is HD videos which I can run through my GTS 250 display. I simply want a 3rd display for everyday use. Would this be possible on the P5B Deluxe and also, this motherboard should handle running Windows 7 x64 fine? Currently my system specs: Windows Vista Ultimate 64-Bit (Upgrading to Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit) Intel Core2Duo E6400 2.13ghz Asus P5B Deluxe/wifi-AP mobo 4 GB GSkill DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) EVGA GeForce GTS 250 1x80GB WD SATA2 2x250GB WD SATA2 2x40GB WD SATA (External) CORSAIR CMPSU-550VX PSU (550Watts) Thanks for any help.

Does anyone know if you can even run 2 different video cards in each of the pci-e slots and they both run at the same time, does bios even allow this? Is there a jumper i'd have to change? I haven't really seen anything in the manual that covers this.

For any of those interested, I had a EVGA GTS 250 and I just bought a MSI GeForce 8400 GS and both of these cards run just fine on the board. So if your looking for more than 2 screens, this setup works.
