  1. Yes, they need to be cards of the same type. 2 x GTX760s for example.

    Your motherboard needs to have 2 PCI-e 2.0 lanes running at x8 speed and support for SLI/crossfire.
    Also your PSU needs to have enough power to run both cards.
  2. yes, its called Crossfire and SLI.
    and you need a MB who supports that and then 2 GPU's
    and a PSU with enough power

    Thanks all for the replies!

    I need to figure out which gpu to purchase that will work.

    motherboard: GIGABYTE Z87-D3HP
    GPU 1: Nvidia GEFORCE 650 GTX 2GB DDR5

    I need to combine it with a GPU with a Mini display port so that it will work with Apple cinema display. Such as this one:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/11201-17-20G-DisplayPort-CrossFireX-Multi-GPU-Technology/dp/B009YTT5RW/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=28RIYEHHDFVC0&coliid=I3DKQQCGYVBM8T

    It says it has crossfire multigpu technology, does that mean it will work? Is this good gpu?
  4. Which exact model GPU do you have?
    You can not combine an AMD card with an Nvidia card.

    You didnt mention what power supply or motherboard you have?

    I have a 850W power supply so its more than enough I presume.

    Motherboard: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Gigabyte-Z87-D3HP-Motherboard-Generation-Processors/dp/B00CXK59S8/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1383163402&sr=1-1&keywords=GIGABYTE+Z87-D3HP#productDetails
    GPU model: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 2GB DDR5

    Not sure how to find which exact model GPU?

    So if I want to combine this GPU I need to find a suitable Nvidia card? Can you recommend any that has a mini displayport?
  6. Best answer
    The GTX650? Unless its the GTX650 ti, it does not support SLI at all.

    That board of yours also does not support SLI.
