    Subject pretty well is my question...I have an HP Media Cnter with a
    pci-e geforce card as the display adapter...I want to add a second
    video card (PCI in open slot) but I have been told atFry's that any
    second card will disable the first pci-e card ?

    Is it possible to have two video cards on the same pci-e based
    computer system ?

    Thanks., Tim

    They told you nonsense at Fry's...
    Yes, it is. Usually there is a BIOS setting that lets you choose which
    card will be the primary adapter. If your BIOS doesn't have this setting
    then the priority is set after the slot numbering (which means your PCIe
    gfx card will be primary).
