The question pretty much says it all.

I use an old 845GBV board ( to-date reliant upon the integrated graphics processor ). All slots on the board are unused. Lately I've been thinking in terms changing it to a dual monitor so that I can use one console for documentation/help/sample code/whatever, the other one to play with code.

Assuming this board can handle a PCI GPU, can an AGP4x board coexist with a PCI GPU?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

To answer your question, yes a PCI and a AGP card can both work in the same box. Can't answer any details about that specific model of motherboard though. – RobM Feb 10 '11 at 14:41
There was a motherboard which marketed this as a feature, so I'm sure it works. – Paul Sweatte Apr 16 '13 at 6:41

Unless there is a system specific block on this, it should work.

I don't get why you use old technology like this, but I agree with DaBear, it schould work. – Michael K Feb 10 '11 at 16:10
