    Alright before I installed Vista, I had 2 Nvidia 7900GT in dual mode.

    I took one out just incase Vista couldn't handle it or whatnot.

    I would like to install the other card back in, is it safe to do this? Anything I need to remove or add before I do this?

    Since the cards are deemed as plug and play then Windows will just install the drivers on boot. Simply install the second card and then install the drivers.

    What matt said.

    Only consider doing what you are thinking of doing wrt installing sotware if it doesn't recognize and install off the bat.
