GeForce 7800 GT On Top Of Radeon HD 4870?

Hey. I'm interested in installing OSx86 on my system, and although I know there aren't currently any drivers to support my ATI Radeon HD 4870, I do have an nVidia GeForce 7800 GT lying around that I intend to use. However, there's no way I'm getting rid of my 4870, so would it be possible to have both installed and use, say, EasyBCD to designate the 7800 GT as the appropriate card for booting OSx86 with? I'm very eager to get this dual-boot up and running so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks for reading.

 

P.S. I wish to have this operate on a single-monitor setup. My monitor features two inputs--one for DVI, one for D-sub--and has the ability to easily switch between sources. I know it's safe, as I currently use it for switching between my PC and Xbox 360.

well it could work aslong as the mac knows what card to look for as primary

tryed it with 2 ati cards once but that did not work (X1900xtx and a hd 3870) osx can see 2 cards but only 1 card gets a working monitor

there are theards that tell about 2 working niviea cards but there always identical/

look for the sticky 2 gfx cards in the video sub forum
