    Basically, I bought a Gforce GTX560. Is there anything I can do with my old video card? I have a slave video slot on my motherboard, but I can't bridge the two since my old card is a Gforce 512 and my new one is a gig. suggestions?

    It really depends on the card model. Is it post-7000 series? If so, use it as a physics processor.

    Then unfortunately you can't. Only cards with CUDA can be used as a physics coprocessor.

    Well hay, I got another question. Is it possible to use my onboard video card for a third monitor?

    I'm using the 590 card, and if you go on the Surround settings on the Nvidia Control Panel and select 'activate all displays' it lets you use all three with one card. I think the downside to this is that you can no longer set SLI to a single monitor like you can with two monitors.

    Trapped in my own thoughts.

    It depends; some motherboards disable the onboard video entirely if you've got a video card plugged in.

    There's probably a setting in the BIOS, you should check that
