Windows 7: Multiple Graphics Cards?

Multiple Graphics Cards?

Hello, I currently have an ATI RADEON HD 4850 in my computer, but i have an old Nvidia 6600.. something laying around. I was wondering if it would be possible to drop that in my system and use it purely for additional moniters. I dont mean to link it with my ati card cause i know that that wont work, but basically keep it seperate to run a few more moniters.

Edit: not only for windows 7 but if its possible on vista too.

windows 7 beta 64

I got 2 completely different cards and run 3 screens and a projector off of them. The only niggle i have found with windows 7 is some games wont start unless i disable all but my main screen. Once the game has loaded up i can alt tab out and re-enable my screens, wierd and i haven't heard of a fix yet.

I'm having major issues.. can't get ati 4800 and nvidia 5300 to work... only one works at a time depending on which slot in motherboard.. and it seems like nvidia drivers don't work at all
