    I've sent my 2080ti out for repair so in the mean time I bought an RX580 to get me by.
    If or When the 2080 comes back is there any reason to keep the 580 installed?

    I'm running 2 32" TV's and a 55"4K UHD as my main display. 1360x768 - 3840x2160 - 1360x768

    Could I run the Displays off the 580 and set the 2080 for purely gaming?
    If you use the 2080 for gaming, it will output to the display

    I don't edit. The most i do is gaming and watch movies. If i didnt sell off my old setup to pay for this one it would've gave to my stepson. Which would die a week later from all the spyware and or porn.

    Hi folks
    rather more "Boring" answer than some of the above -- however a good use for 2 graphic cards is that if you decide to use Virtual Machines with a HYPERVISOR e.g HYPER-V or KVM/QEMU then use a separate graphics card on the Virtual Machine via passthru.

    This will improve the graphics performance of the VM - sometimes dramatically to that of neart Native speed so you can use the VM quite successfully for gaming, 3-D etc etc.

    Cheers

    I have never heard of this route. Is there software or hardware I have to acquire?
