So I have my integrated ATI Radeon HD 4200 which has my secondary monitor plugged into it. I have a AMD Radeon HD 6670 PCI card that's running my main monitor on it. With PCI set first in the boot order of GPUs in my BIOS, the integrated card doesn't show up in any form under Device Manager. However if I set the integrated GPU first, they both appear under Device Manager. Anyone have any ideas on why this is?

System specs:
Mainboard: ASUS M4A785-M (BIOS updated to most recent version on ASUS's site)
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 940 3.0 GHz (OC'd to 3.4 GHz)
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB / ATI Radeon HD 4200
Memory: 6GB DDR2 400 MHz Nanya Tech
HDD: 640GB Western Digital / 1TB Seagate Barracuda
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Any other system info you want, just let me know. Thanks.

The PCI video card enabled in BIOS or being used as default GPU is the one recognized in your system.
