Trying to run 3 monitors, with 2 graphics cards Help.

I hope someone on here can help me with this.

1st my set up
Gigabyte P55-UD4P with a Intel I5 750 Lynnfield
Windows 7 Pro SP1

16 GB of Corsair PC3 10700H (667Mhz)

1TB HD

PNY Nvida GeForce GT 430 in the PCIe slot (Driver V 301.42 DirectX 11)

1 32" LCD TV (HDMI)

1 19" wide LCD Monitor (VGA)

1 17" wide LCD Monitor (VGA)

I can only run 2 Monitors ( 1 HDMI and 1 VGA) at a time with this set up, I like to run all 3 Monitors at 1 time .
So I did this
I got a EVGA NVIDIA GeForce 6200 PCI Graphics adapter. I put it in pci 2, have my 17" wide lcd VGA pluged in to that (The Nvida GeForce GT 430 in the PCIe has 1 32" LCD TV (HDMI) and 1 19" wide LDC Monitor (VGA)) . The GT 430 sees the 19" But when I enable my 19" wide lcd VGA ( in windows CP and Nvida CP ) all video go black? now what??? Its also slowing the PC down. HELP!
