Default So what happens if I want to run a 5200 and a 6600GT together?

I'm going back to triple-head, and my old setup was using a 5200 PCI in addition to whatever primary card I have (currently 6600GT).

Am I right assuming this is a no-go because I cannot run the legacy and current drivers at the same time?

Neither of those cards is legacy.

Ah Thanks, Aaron.

I got the NVxx numbers mixed up.

Any expectations of when the 5200 might enter legacy?

I take that as a good sign

Thanks again.
