Default PCI Video Card Question


My current system has 1 AGP video card and 1 PCI video card installed. Out of them I have 3 monitors hooked up with no problems what so ever. In order to use the PCI card together with my AGP card I had to set my BIOS to boot from the PCI video card. So would anybody think it possible to install another PCI video card for a 4th monitor?

I am currently using Windows XP Pro SP2.

If you use Nvidia the driver it will allow you to use multiple monitor support... I don't know about ati... but i think u can just right click on the desktop and go to properties and use the settings tab to enable new monitors... after all, even if they are all different slots they are still display adapters...
