    I am looking to buy a second graphics card as I now have a third monitor. Will all of the above cards work with an existing 8800GT?

    Early 2K8 mac pro.

    Thanks!

    yes, but in windows if you use 2600xtb with 8800GT you might want to disable 1 of them as there will be conflicts

    Before I got my 8800 GT, I ran an HD2600 XT and 7300 GT together. The 8800 and 7300 will definitely work together, the HD2600 and 8800 perhaps not.

    I am curious to know if you get the 2600 working with the 8800 also - if it will work (does it HAVE to go in the top PCI slot? I hve my RAID card in there and I don't want the 2600 for performance, just to drive an extra screen)

    Keep us posted please ?
