Default Radeon 9800 on PCI?

hey, my Display Adapter section shows up like this in device manager:

Radeon 9800 Pro
Secondary Radeon 9800 Pro

The primary one is on AGP, but it shows the secondary as PCI...anyone know why?

Hmm.......

That is definetely quite weird.....

I have an ATI Radeon 9600XT and on the Device Manager, for me I also have an extra thing that says "Secondary ATI Radeon 9600 Series"

Weird........

So me and you must have video cards that are half AGP half PCI?

SWEET!!!

Isn't that because most of the ATI cards have the DVI and the VGA outputs and you can connect two monitors to them? That was my answer when I asked myself the same question.. That doesn't explain the PCI part.. humm.. you got me..

its on the card or the port. The agp port is messed and screwing up what it is or the card is messed up and identifies it as something its not(the bottom part where it fits int the slot

Its because there is a spot for two monitors on the back of the card. It needs two channels so you can run two monitors at the same time. I have it on my 9600XT and even my 9000 Pro had it. Its not half AGP half PCI or anything like that.
