I'm thinking about picking up a 8800gs or something like that to mess around with CUDA. The thing is I'm running a 4850. I don't want any driver conflictions, so I thought about dualbooting 2 separate OSes, one with ATi drivers, and the other with CUDA drivers. Whenever I want to game I'd swap out the card and boot into the correct OS. Would this work? Is there an easier way? I'd like to keep my 4850 for now.

Unless you can leave both in and set a primary video device in each os... Dunno never tried.

I only have 1 x16 slot on my p35. Don't know how bandwidth hungry CUDA is.

EDIT: I'm actually going to try and sell my 4850 instead of my gtx 260, so drivers are no longer the problem. Mods can lock.
