Default Two display cards to drive three monitors

Hi All,

I am new to this forum and would like some suggestion on this subject. I have built a few PC in the past, but mainly they have one display card driving one monitor. I once put a system together using on AGP card driving two monitors and a PCI card drive one monitor. This has been working for some time now.

Recently I have been trying to got get a PCI-E card and a PCI to work together on Windows XP to drive three monitors without success.

Has anyone manage to get this combination to work and if so, what make and model of cards was used.

Any suggestion will be gratefully received.

Thanks for you time, I look forward to hearing from you.

I have an old Dell Dimension with a PCI Geforce 5200 and the onboard Intel video. It worked plug and play with three monitors.

This is old equipment, but it was still okay. Hope that was relevant.

Thank you for your comments. I think that this combination should work, but in my case maybe there are incompatible issues between the cards I was using.

Thanks again
