just bought this Asus mobo:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/...x?Item=N82E16813131095

i have an old geforce 6200LE (64bit) pci-e, and an even older Radeon 7000 PCI. (i'm going to upgrade when Diablo III comes out.)

I'm running WinXP sp3.

will there be problems if i have both in the same mobo?

what order do i install the video drivers?

You can use both cards at the same time.

Install the driver for the card that connects to your primary monitor first (probably the PCI-E?) . And make sure in the BIOS that you select the card that connects to your primary monitor to display first. The BIOS might refer to PCI-E as PEG.
