Here is my old system:
MB: Asus P6T Deluxe (LGA1366)
CHIPSET: Intel® X58 / ICH10R
CPU: Core i7 920 2.66Ghz (LGA1366)
RAM: 8 GB DDR3/1333MHz Non-ECC Non-Registered Memory Module
VIDEO: NVIDIA 9800GTX+ 512MB Dual DVI (PCI-E) Video Card (2)
OS: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
SOUND: ADI® AD2000B 8 -Channel High Definition Audio CODEC
I had two video cards, each with two video connectors. But I only have two monitors. If I removed one of the video cards, do I loose performance? In other words, do the two video cards chare video processing, even if only one of them has monitors plugged into it? If so, then removing one would result in a perfomance hit, right? Is that how it works?
I'm shopping for a new system and I'm leaning towards one honkin video card instead of two, but I'm not sure that's a smart "strategery"...
