Conflicting Drivers for RADEON Graphics Cards??

Hi All, 

I just finished installing my new AMD RADEON RX 6500 XT.  This card is a little bit of overkill for what I need to use it for, but it was the only one I could get my hands on quickly.  I planned on using this card to drive an extra monitor, in addition to my other card (AMD RADEON HD 6450) which is driving two monitors. 

Initially the 6500xt wouldn't work at all, no plug and play functionality.  So, I downloaded the adrenalin software & drivers, but couldn't install until I uninstalled the 6450 from device manager.  Once the adrenalin software/drivers were installed, the 6500xt started working fine, but the two monitors on the 6450 not so much.  the 6450 is putting out only one screen, and the resolution (and resolution options) are very bad.  

Anybody have any idea what is going on here?  Is it possible to run these cards at the same time and expect them to function correctly?


Thanks for the help,
