i have a card in the pci1 slot (below the pci-e x16) and there is a small card above the the pci-e x16 slot but it's not hooked into the pci-e x1 slot... there is a cord that connects it to the tv out slot though. it has tv out ports on it so basically i have 2 sets of tv out ports and in theory i could take the above one out.
my friend bought 2 of the 8600's cause he was going to do the whole SLI thing or whatever, but never did. He sold me one, brand new, un-opened for 100 bucks. I literally don't have enough for the 8800 which i've been finding for 299.
