Hey everyone,

I was thinking of getting the ATI X1950 Card for that blasted DHCP crap so I can run HDDVD and Blue-Ray in the future. But, would I have to take out my current card to do it, or can I run two ATI cards in one machine?

I was really hoping that Fusion HDTV cards would come with a Radio Tuner in the future, but since that dosn't look likely, I'm going to still need my AIW card in there.

Thanks

heh since when does DHCP have too do with video? DHCP is a networking protocol. And yes it is possible too have more than one video card in a system, but it will really depend on your mobo slot layout.

While you can combine two different video cards in multiple systems (like SLI, Crossfire, etc.) the combination of an ATI card + an ATI AIW will not work. This is because of how ATI's MediaCenter drivers control the AIW. (Not thinking of Windows MCE, but ATI's MediaCenter tools)
