Can 8800 and 6600 coexist on one system?
 
I'm currently running two nearly identical 6600GT's to power my three 20-inchers. After running this for a few hours I was spoiled to ever go back to less than three, but obviously the 6600's are way underpowered for todays games so I'm thinking about replacing just the primary with an 8800 of some kind.

The question is - can those cards coexist? Last I checked at least they were running separate drivers, and I'd hate to wind up with some massive compatibility issues.

Anyone know?

A 6600GT will not go with a 8800 in SLI.

Yes you can run them in the same machine to run your three monitors, current drivers run 8/7/6 series cards.

Obviously you cant do it in SLI

SLi doesn't support multiple monitors away so he is just using them to spread the desktop space etc. So the answer as above, yet you can.

There are motherboards with multiple pci-e slots for your video cards that aren't SLI. My wife bought me a N-Force 4 DFI board once that had multiple slots thinking she was getting me an SLI board.
