I know that VGA ISA cards would always take precedence over PCI & AGP cards. But having two video cards would supposedly work, if the ISA card isn't VGA (or if not initially recognized as such?). At least I've read as much here in the forums.
So would a system with both an EGA (ISA) card and a VGA (PCI) card prioritize the latter? Better yet, there are several ISA cards that sport both TTL and VGA video outputs. Some of these cards let you configure them to power-up in either VGA, EGA, CGA or MDA mode, and store that configuration in EEPROM. The ATi VGA Wonder cards for example. Other cards probably do the same with jumper settings.
Does anyone of you have a dual card like that to test? Will it recognize a PCI VGA card as the primary video card under such condition?
Just to clarify, I'm not interested in multi-monitor operation, just about having both ISA & PCI cards in the system, and using them in turns.
