Can I run a nvidia gtx 780 and a nvidia gtx 660 on the same system?

I want to run 2 different graphics cards(both are NVidia), a stronger one for rendering the game, and another for rendering a video while recording or rendering a stream(as I am streaming it obviously) so that I don't get much, if any lag. Is this possible or do I need to look for another solution to my lag?

  1. Well you won't be able to SLI them, as for having one card for each screen.... idk. Do you have both cards already?
  2. You can run 2 different video cards in non-sli. Each would run a separate monitor, therefore the 660 screen would not impact the game running on the 780. I am not sure if that entirely answers your question or not. Or are you looking for the 660 to do some sort of background task?
  3. I am wanting the 660 to perform a background task. Such as rendering a video or similar.
  4. If there is a way in the software to designate that process to use the 660 only, it might work. I am not completely sure that it will though.

    Yes and no. You cannot SLI them and must use them as separate entities. OR. The only real use for the GTX 660 is for PhysX. Check this link out: http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_faq.html
