I do quite a bit of 3d rendering in my line of work (architect), so i'm building a computer for such tasks. I also enjoy playing game, so from a previous build i have an unused gtx 560, its not really good at hardcore rendering but tears up any game i throw it. So regarding my working pc, i figured i need to buy a mid range quadro.

is there any way i can install both gpus on one motherboard but switch between them depending on what i'm doing?

thanks in advance

id say there is. i cant exactly think how you would only using one monitor. but dual monitors you could by just using the monitor you have connected to each card

honestly i don't know how that going to work out. even if the mobo has two PCI-E slots for graphic the system will always prioritize the card in the primary slot. normally the card on the second slot will only able to provide additional monitor output. the story is different if it is about SLI or using the second card as a dedicated physx card

well you cannot switch cards the way you want to...but you can surely use both cards at the same time.you can use the gtx card as the primary gpu and use the quadro as the phys x card for rendering.

you cannot use sli,mind you

I know sli is not pOssible. But regarding you idea, is the performance on both tasks any different as compared to using indivIdual cards for their respective tasks?

I'm no expert on the matter but my personal experience says "Outlook not good".
