Yup, it's possible. takes a bit of fiddling around though. AFAIK, just
put it in, and every time you want to change over you have to go into
the system settings and change the default graphics card from AGP to PCI
(or vice versa). The first time you do it, windoze will say something
like "new graphics device/monitor detected" and will ask you do you want
to set t up. From then on, you'll have the choice of 2 monitors in your
display options. It's a bit of a bitch though, as you'll have to keep
swapping your monitor cable and changing your BIOS settings every time
you want to switch.
