    Have you tried the 3D Rage card in a different PCI slot?

    But then again it maybe that the drivers of both cards can't get along together.

    The easiest way to have dual monitors is to use a video card that is dual monitor capable.

    I really havn't much of an idea about Canada but this is about the only one that I could find though I'm sure that someone else may know of something better, http://www.ncix.com/products/index.p...nufacture=ASUS, it'll be much better than that MX440 you have but I've never had any problems fitting an ATi card in an nForce based mainboard.

    ATI boards work fine in nVidia based mainboards. Just make sure to disable onboard graphics in BIOS before you install Windows.

    Just because yours doesn't support onboard video doesn't make that any less true. There are plenty of 64 bit boards with onboard video. Hell, they had Opteron boards with onboard video before socket 754 ever even came out.

    I wouldn't worry about AMD Lover to much Yawg as he's much the same as you and doesn't have a good hands on understanding of things (but them again he may not understand quite as much as you read either).
