Using both internal and AGP graphics

I have an ASUS P4P800-VM motherboard with integrated intel graphic chipset, plus an AGP Radeon 9600XT
is it possible to use both graphic chipsets at the same time ? I tried changing some things in the bios but only got ONE working at a time...

If your onboard video is agp, you can only run one card at a time
I'm curious ...  the 9600xt  HAS  dual video output  ... what are  you trying to accomplish?
Doh! ... 3 monitors

An AGP card will displace the onboard video automatically through the BIOS, and therefore you won't be able to activate the onboard video through Windows.  If you need additional video output beyond the 9600XT card, you should plan on installing a second video card that can work cooperatively with the ATI, such as an Nvidia or a Matrox, both of which provide multi-monitor support through their drivers.

I believe that with most Mobo with built-in video, the bios automatically disables the internal one when an AGP video is detected. I think you hav to install a separate video, a pci one or other, if you want to use a second monitor if 'ur current one has no dual video.
