Sep 19, 2013, 2:03 AM
So im upgrading my pc this days, and im getting a better gpu
Currenlty im running a Geforce GTX 450 gpu and im getting an sapphire hd 7950
I might sell my gefroce gtx 450 LATER on.
So when i have 2 gpus, Is it an advantage to run both of them in 1 motherboard and one screen until i sell my old one?

You shouldn't, Conflicts in the drivers will possibly arise and will probably damage your motherboard and your GPUs.
Very few motherboards however support this, but still best not to have 2 different GPUs in a single board.

7950 is almost twice as fast as GTX 450 or even more. Keep 7950 alone.
