    Default Multiple Graphics Cards

    Im interested in finding out if its possible to run 2 different graphics cards in a Hackintosh build.

    Ill more than likely be purchasing a Gigabyte GA-P55M-UD2 which has 2 PCI-E slots, one running at x16 and the other running at x4.

    My plan is to have a Palit 9800GT running at x16 supporting dual monitors and a Zotac 8400GS running in the slower x4 slot using just HDMI out to TV.

    Is this doable/viable, is there a better method to achieve what Im looking for?

    Any info/recommendations appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Thanks for replies,

    I know theres lots of people running 9800GT x2 but Im wondering if its much hassle setting up 2 different cards, if it causes any conflicts with kexts etc as they would each need different tweeking around in order to work correctly.

    Is it just a case of setting up one first and then adding the other?

    Thanks again
