2 display card with Win 95 :
- One card 2D and one accelerator 3D OK, same monitor.
- Two graphics card 2D: many restrictions or special card.

- It is Ok and very easy  with windows 98.



- MATROX G200 /  8 or 12 Mo AGP
- Card with chipset Voodoo 2 /PCI/ with another card for 2D.
- Card with Banshee chipset : 2D/3D

- ATI XPERT 98 or XPERT98@PLAY98 8 Mo AGP  : cheaper 90$.

I read in a magazine somewhere (you can see the kind of high quality source material you're working with here :) ) that a wise person used two cards of the same model with '98's multiple-monitor thing.  That forces you to use 2 x PCI cards, as there is only ever one AGP slot.

With Win 98 you can use 2 differents card, AGP and PCI, PCI and PCI, or any combinaison with ISA ( plug and play card is recommended ).

It's a great card, no problem.
I prefer ATI card with ATI Rage Pro Processor : 2D/3D card
Normally the banshee chipset is now available. Wait one month...

I hope it is not to late !!!
