    i have an extra 4780 ati dual video card, and wanted to ask if i install this and hook up a monitor and another mouse and key board could one use that set up to put parralles on and use windows on its own monitor with key board and mouse while using osx in the other 2 windows i have?

    any one?

    thanks

    Windows via a VM goes via Mac OS X, thus you can fullscreen the VM on a monitor connected to the other GPU (if supported by Mac OS X), but don't expect any GPU acceleration in Windows.

    ok so no exceleration huh? ok, i guess i could flash the card if i wanted to? that way it is compatible for the mac as well? and then use both dual and hook one up to the tv as well then? awesome,

    what about dual keyboards, and mice? so when i was using osx the wive could be on windows
