hi, is it possible to have different vga card in one pc? AFAIK vista/w7 dont allow this but what about XP?

My plan is to built a legacy gaming pc with one 4:3 LCD connected to a 9700pro and a CRT monitor connected to a pci Voodoo 5 so i can switch between them without rebooting and changing cables etc.

Windows vista doesnt allow for multiple VGA drivers but XP and Windows 7 does so your good unless you use vista
