MerrickDS;3292709Yes ... that is what i said. You can't run them in sli. So if you aren't running them in sli, then you are not running them together ?
I imagine that it would all depend on how you define 'togther.'
In my view (and I'd imagine most everyone elses) the answer would be a definate 'no.' Since you can only run one single card at a time (like you said), you can't use the power of the other card to give you a boost.
And since you would have both an AGP and PCIe video card installed in the situation that is being described, the AGP card would almost certianly be obsolete when compared with the PCIe card.
Correct .. maybe i wasn't clear. If you have an agp and a pcie. The only way two cards can be ran together is via SLI. Seeing as SLI technology is inherent to only PCIe, then no you can not run an agp and a pcie together.
since the new video cards needs atleast 300 watts of power, do i need a new power supply also? i have a 450 watt and having to upgrade all my stuff to go with vistas standards and/or better be enough.
Edit: i am reasearching directx 10 to get full details to i dont' waste money and so far i am a bit noobish on all this. And can u tell em whats wrong with that foxconn? I just need something with 3 pci slots *check*, pcie 16x slot *check*, high bus speed *check*, and can hold 4 SATA slots *check*.
Some people think that Foxconns aren't the highest quality boards.
But the reviews of the mobo you've selected, look pretty good on NewEgg:' http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16813186058What brand is the power supply? If it's a decent brand, then 450 ought to be okay.
well they are cheap and that had good ranks in pcgamer, i might look some more, but ya i have a power lab 450 watt PS, came with the case.

In that case you're gonna need a new PSU.
How many watt would you suppose?
Around 480-500 watt should do.
Make sure it's a decent brand. Antec makes good PSU's.
alright, i have started ordering SOME of my stuff to get ready for vista and DX10, thanks for the help guys and mavinmatthew.
Sure, that's what we're here for.
