Two GPUs, Same Mobo, Use 1 for mining, 1 for PC use?
« on: December 02, 2013, 02:34:11 AM »
Good evening miners.


I currently have a 7970 and 7770 OC GPUs. I'd like to run the 7970 for mining only, while running the 7770 to power my computer's normal GUI functions.


Can I do this? Will my computer operate mainly as normal if I use the 7770 for dedicated normal PC stuff?
I use CGMiner.


Thanks!

Great question.

I have the same problem. I recently started mining litecoins with my OC'ed gtx760 but it sucks at it and I only get about 180khash/s. I wonder if I can buy radeon r9 280x and use it only for mining and simultaneously game on my gtx760.
