Currently I have an ATI All Wonder Pro 32 Mb with TV Tuner card. I want to
keep it in the PC just for TV tuner. I want to install Geoforce fx 5200 card
from XFX, and connect my monitor to it and use it as a defualt video card. Is
this going to be problem??
I understand when I have to watch TV i will be pluging into ATI card.
I have Windows XP sp2. Will XP take care of of detecting where monitor is
plugged in and load the appropriate driver???

You select the default monitor in the BIOS.

You may also find it better to use two ati cards rather than one from each
camp, as this often causes problems.
