Default Mix Matching Graphic cards

Hi I was curious if anyone knew if I would be able to mix and match a Nvidia GeForce 9800 GX2 with my Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX+, I run on Vista OS. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

YEs I believe you should be able to but even so you can always try and see what happens if you own the cards already.

You can add the 2nd card as a dedicated PhysX card.
