Re: I came back to XP so i could use 2 different GPUs...now what?
Step 1: Install PCIE Video card, as well as drivers. Make sure it's working all fine and dandy.
Step 2: Power down, plug the PCI card in. Plug in your 3rd monitor into your PCI card. Power up. You should boot into windows with only your 3rd monitor having any display. It will then ask for drivers etc. so install and reboot.
Step 3: After reboot, you still have video on third monitor. Once it boots up it will ask you for the drivers for your PCIE video card. Don't ask, i don't understand. Install the drivers, and reboot.
Step 4: You should now have one of your PCIE monitors displaying video. From there all i had to do was go into properties(right click on desktop)-->settings and i saw all 3 monitors. I toggled my main, resolution for each, etc. For some reason only the primary had 32-bit color, the rest had 8. Easy to change.
Very very crude, but it worked for me O.O
