In Topic: [Guide] Triple or quad monitors with two graphic cards

Yep, I would stick to Nvidia as well for the PCI card. I have not tried another brand. Actually I did try and second brand (ATI) card along with my PCI Express Nvidia card and I could not get it to work.
Accordingly, I am now running an Nvidia PCI Express Card and a PCI card together.

the only advice I could give you, is to stay with nvidia. I never tried a pci card in os x and I dont recommend things I didnt try myself ;)

Hi, I would really like to get my surround sound working. I have a Geforce 7050m-m motherboard. That has a Realtek ALC662 audio card on it.
I have tried the different ALC662 text files running around and no go.
So I wanted to find out if any one has instructions on how I can create my own.

Score!!!
I got it working.
So I ended up not using the approach outlined in this thread. Rather I ended up using the NVinject dual card kext available at http://nvinject.free.fr/downloads.php

I used NVinject.0.2.0_dual_cards.zip

With that, I can run my 6200 PCI and my 7200 PCI Express together to run a total of 4 screens. I am able to run quartz as well. In bios I had to choose PCI as my preferred startup device.

I am pretty happy about this. Now I just need to get surround sound working and I have the system exactly the way I want it.

Peach,
Nope. Unfortunately I have not been able to get an output from both video cards at the same time as of yet... that is my ultimate goal :)
I am trying to troubleshoot this by getting one monitor running on my PCI express card and another running on my PCI card.
One thing I noticed is that without the NVinject drivers installed, my card 6200 PCI card can only run 1024x768 running alone.
So does that mean that since I cannot use NVinject with GFX, I cannot use this card?
Does GFX does not support a GeForce 6200 ?
For this 6200 card, under NVInject, Quartz is supported and I can get the resolution I am looking for (running alone).
Without NVInject, Quartz is not supported and I can only run 1024x768.

So it seems I have gotten further. I am able to see my two cards in the system profiler. Unfortunately, my PCI card is listed as 'Display' even though I named it 'NVIDIA GeForce 6200 PCI' in my in.plist file. I am attaching my Plist file and screen shots of what I see in my system profiler.
Any help would be much appreciated!
