    Help or advice setting up dual video cards (NVIDIA)


    Hi,

    I recently got a new rig. Quite happy with it but wanted to make use of my older video card if possible.

    The older card is a GeForce GTX 780 and the new card is a GeForce GTX 1080 which is what is currently installed in the rig?? They both have DDR5 interfaces...

    I do some 3D work so was hoping to speed up my renders a bit more.

    Thanks so much

    You can use it as a PhysX card or have two different GPUs working independently in a PC because you cannot sli them both.

    sli? You mean bridge them? All I want to do is have the other card available similar to what's used in a render farm but on my computer.
