    I posted earlier about if I can use both a Nvidea 8800 GT and an ATI Radeon 2600 XT with my new Mac Pro. Currently it just has an ATI card and it seems like it'll work fine. The other question I have though, how will this work under VMWare? I have a Linux virtual machine but most of all I use a Windows XP Virtual Machine. Will there be a conflict between the two video cards when I use Windows XP? If so, I won't even need the ATI as much when I'm on Windows XP. Is it possible to disable that and just use the NVidea card while using Windows?

    I have both the ATI 2600XT and nvidia 8800GT (flashed PC) installed and they play nicely with each other under both OSX and XP SP2 in bootcamp. One monitor on each.

    Under VMWARE or Parallels you're using the OSX driver not the windows drivers.
