Using a MB with (1) PCIE and (2)PCI slots and Windows XP, I'm trying to get a Geforce 7200(pcie) and a Geforce 4 MX440(pci) to work together for a three monitor configuration.  On board video is an ATI x200 or something and is disabled.  I can install the 7200 no problem with PCI-E set to primary in the BIOS.  Once I install the PCI card, I get BSOD or the hardware properties says, 'This device can not start because it has a problem'.  I can install the PCI fine with out the 7200 installed ( or enabled).  So here is where I am now.  Each card has a driver (set, as one driver covers many cards).  So I'm thinking a driver conflict.  I chaged the 7200 for an 7600gs hoping the 7600gs and the MX440 use the same driver set?!?  Is there anything else to consider, like IRQ settings,  BIOS initiating pci first or order of installation,  Any help greatly appreciated.
