I have a GTX660 right now, but I bought an R9 290x recently. I was wondering if I can leave both in my pc and use one (the GTX660) for Bitcoin mining and one (the R9 290x) for everything else (mostly games).
- Is this even possible?
- Will it decrease gaming performance to run a miner on a separate card?
The rest of my specs:
i7 3820 @ 3.60 GHz
16GB DDR3 RAM @ 1333MHz
Asus 2011 P9X79 Pro
Windows 8 pro
I bought the new card for gaming, but if it would be possible to do this with my old card without losing performance that would be great.
