I built a machine with NVidia SLI setup, quad monitors and Vista, uses NVidias own software for controlling the screens.

Don't know about mixing PCI And PCIE cards. I guess you can suck it and see, doubt it will blow up the PC. Make sure your PSU is up to the job.

I've got an AGP and a PCI video card. They work fine together.

I read you must put the PCI card in the first PCI slot though. I don't know if it makes it work or not, but i've never tried otherwise. It's such a mission to open the pc and then wire it all up again.
