Well it really depends on your OS. If you're on Win 2000 or Win XP then yes, you can pop in your Voodoo and have both cards running a monitor with no real problems. If you're on Win 9x or Win Me then you're out of luck. If it's mac I don't think there's any prob. And linux I have no idea.

Hope that helps.

I just would like to remember that with an AGP and a PCI card you will only have accelerated viewports in the primary display.
Just my 2 cents ;)

Thanks for your help .

@ 3DMadness : I know that , I'm going to use my Voodoo display for 2d works , and my geforce for 3d .

I thought a Voodoo 2 was a switchover to 3d card.......

Voodos didnt do primary display untill voodoo 3

Then I would recommend you to get a cheap PCI card like GeForce2 MX or check e-bay for a cheaper one. ;)

Id like to add that win 98 and ME will allow multiple monitors by using 2 vid cards...no problem, ive done it myself...its 95 and NT that it doesnt work on.
i use w2k now with a GF2 GTS agp and a cheap 4 mb PCI card.
