Default 6800+5500+5500 and GLX

Reading the README file it states I can use GLX across all displays when using Xinerama but only with similar GPUs

How do I know if my 5500 has a similar GPU to the 6800?

I have a 6800 a 5500 and a 5500 all setup using Xinerama and the nvidia drivers, GLX/openGL works on the primary screen (6800) as expected but if I want it to work across all screens how do I know what card(s) to purchase with "similar GPUs"

obviously I cant get a 6800 pci card to match my 6800 AGP card and Im not going to downgrade my 6800 to a 5500 AGP card.

ideas? answer? suggestions? help?

Similar GPUs means the same family (NV4x, NV3x, etc). A GeForce 5500 is NV3x, a GeForce 6800 is NV4x.

Thanks,

I'm not aware of any PCI NV4x cards, but that doesn't meant that there aren't any.
