Geometry vs Graphics
Hi. I want to buy a new pc and I'm thinking about using 2 graphics cards (someone said something that I thought would be interesting to try). So here are the questions:
1) can one graphics card be used to do the graphics/textures and one to do the geometry (both being ATI cards: Radeon X1900XTX and Radeon HD5750)?
2) (if yes to the first one) which one needs more processing power, texture or geometry?
Thank you in advance. Bye.

I assume it is for gaming.
If you want dual graphic card you should get two of same brand and model and then run them in SLI (Nvidia) or Crossfire (ATI/AMD),
Just remember that it is not all application/game that will get benefits out of dual-cards and not all dual-cards setup is worth the money when looking at performance/price.
