Hey, soon i might be getting my hands on Nvidia 660, but currently i have a radeon 6850, that i really don't want to have to sell or anything if i do get the card,(also i like Bitcoin mining(i know it sucks but i pull 20$ a month with it)) is it possible AT ALL to have these 2 cards in one systems the 6850 mining and the 660 for gaming and such.
I know i know don't call me a retard and such but i just want to explore all possibilities before i sell anything..
my current Setup is
Asus M5A97 Motherboard
8GB (4 x 2GB) ram G.Skill 1600 Oced 1937
Amd Phenom II 960T unlocked to Phenom II 1605 6 core Oc'ed 3.8Ghz
Duel power supply setup.
Corsair 650W Power supply(Enthusiast series I believe) for everything but the Video card.
and some older 350W power supply running the HIS Radeon 6850(Oc'ed enourmously(1,000 mhz core and 4700 Mhz Memory(memory counter for some reason is multiplied by 4x for memory) running at 1049 Voltage.. Pulls nearly 300 Mhash per second mining.(Pretty good for this card if you ask me)
Double monitor setup
Samsung Syncmaster 216BW 21.5 inch 1680x1050
(old Flat screen tV i had laying around) LS-TVDVD19-09 19 inch 1400x900
60GB SSD(Can't remember name ATM)
640GB WD 3Gbps HardDrive
160GB westell 3gbps HardDrive
NZXT fan controler
7 fans in my case ATM.(Modified case slightly)
HAF 912 Case
I know my computer is WAY out there when it comes to parts and manufacturers, but i got what i could afford
And about your corsair 650W everything but a gpu? Why? 650W is enough for your whole build, dont add some old psu, it could crap out and destroy your card.
I have it like so because i overclock so much i want to be able to reach optimum levels, and not reach high PSU usage. also this PSU its stoneage old, its like 3 years old so better than the 12 year old Dell power supply i ahve sitting inside some box outside.
Just put your 6850 on the desk for decoration.
yea no not happening, I enjoyed the starky, sarcastic comment though.
