I have an ATI 8500 All-in-Wonder Radeon video card in my old computer which allows video, audio analog capture. I purchased a new HP d5100t computer and according to sources, this Vista does not allow analog capture, only digital. I also purchased a new Sony SR11 HD camcorder which works well with the new computer but I am unable to load or capture analog video.

I have the two computers hooked up to the same monitor now. My question is....

CAN I install and have two different video cards in one computer? [/b][/size]

Thus, having one inactive at a time??

Would this be as simple as a slide in installment? I have not attempted to do so as I am unaware of consequences.

Not sure about the analogue video recording bit but yes you can have 2 graphics cards installed.
