Default Running 2 graphic cards

I have a Radeon 9600 Pro and i just realized my MB has a GeForce 4 MX onboard, can i somehow use them together to render stuff faster? my mb is a GIGABYTE 7N400-L

BTW: how can i find out the maximum CPU speed my MB can handle? the manual only says 1.4 and up doesnt actually say the upper limit

you can't combine there powers together, but you could use the radeon 9600 for the games and the other one for a second minitor. it would be better if you just disable the onboard video and use only the radeon.

Im pretty sure he would not even be able to use the onboard video as a second monitor. If there was a card in the agp slot, it will automatically disable the onboard video.

/\ correct. You can not get dual monitor support by using 2 video cards. One video card, one IRQ.
