I am a new (potential) CUDA user and I want to setup properly my computer. I read in the CUDA 2.0 relase notes that CUDA programs should run on a NVidia card that does not drive a monitor due to the 5 sec Windows XP limitation. Currently I am using an ATI graphics card connected to my motherboard’s single PCI Express x16 slot.
I would like to ask if it would be possible to buy a NVidia card that connects to a PCI-E x1 (the tiny connector) and use it for my CUDA applications, while still keeping the ATI card for driving the display. Is there going to be a driver conflict?
Thank you very much for your time!
