I have a PC gaming setup. It includes a "gaming" video card. I also do 3d rendering and design in AutoCAD and Solid works. Gaming cards are not ideal for these programs. So my question is it is possible to use two different videocards on one computer? I would set up an A/B Switch for the monitors as if i were switching between 2 different computers. Here is my hardware:
-MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3+ AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
-AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX
-ABS SL series SL1050 1050W Continuous @50°C ,80 PLUS SILVER Certified
Yes you can. That firepro is essentially a workstation optimized 5670. I don't think it will preform better in rendering programs than a 5870 in general, but I'm sure there are some cases where it might. It's up to you.
