Hi, I have two Nvidia Video Cards on my motherboard. One is a PCI express, one is a PCI card. I did this because my motherboard didn't have two PCI express slots. I am able to run both of these video cards (the PCI express is a 7200 and the PCI is a 6200, both with 256 mb of ram) on Windows and have a quad monitor setup. I am trying to do the same thing on my hackintosh. Does anyone know if this is possible. All of the posts I have seen to date are for people that have two PCI express cards. The good news is that both of these cards run fine individually. Any thoughts on how I can get this working? I am running Kalway 10.5.2
Just saw your post, (I HAVE BEEN AWAY FOR A WHILE). I cannot think of any particular reasons why your second card is slower other that that your second slot could be 4x or an 8x slot whereas your first PCIe slot is most likely a 16x slot. Do all 4 outputs work on your cards, I would have thought you would need to change the the NVCAP info on the VGA/DVI card.
I have not tried this with PCI cards as I don't have any, although I would not hold out a lot of hope.
Hey good luck with that Jaev. What motherboard do you have?
lol i was shooting for the moon i guess.
I have an evga x58 mobo. Its that new tri-sli one. With i7 920. It didnt like both of the cards together. There's also no options in the bios to enable booting off of peg2. So strange however you know since the cards work perfectly fine by themselves.

I think I've almost got this working using two 9600GT 512MB on an Gigabyte EP45-DS3R. Both cards work fine for themselves. If I set my BIOS to PEG, the card in the first slot will boot up and both displays on that card work fine with QE/CI. The second card however remains dead. If I switch to PEG2 I get the exact same results only now it's the second card doing all the fancy stuff and the first one being dead.
Both cards are recognized by System Profiler. The second card does not just show as "display", but with all the correct information, except that the displays attached to it don't get recognized.
I'm running iPC 10.5.6 with Voodoo Kernel and Chameleon. Could there be something wrong with this? Or do you have any other ideas what I might be doing wrong? I'm desperate...
