Windows 7: Running 2 GPUs - Possible?

09 Feb 2014   #31

Windows 7 Pro x64 Windows 10 Pro x64

I`m sorry but is this not your card ?

I see 2 dvi ports on it.

So why wouldn`t 2 dvi to vga adapters and 2 vga cables work ?

You just need the proper dvi to vga adapters for each dvi connection.

Gary is correct, the card would have to have 2 DVI-I connectors to run 2 vga monitors. :)

I`m holding an older PNY Verto PCI-Express card ( 6600 GT ) and it has 2 DVI-I connectors on it.

My 9600 GT`s even have 2 DVI-I connectors on them, but they are old too.

But going back to your original question, as already stated, I think you would need 2 identical cards ( not in cross fire ) and you could connect a monitor to each. I`ve done it with 2 9600 GT`s. But then you are not taking advantage of the speed of 1 card in 1 slot. You just need to get a newer monitor to use with the Asus card :)

Gary, I just noticed you said the same thing in Post #2 that I said in Post #31 LOL

1 GPU vs 2 GPUs
In my gaming rig I have a GTX 660 but I also own two Radeon HD 7870 cards, now my question is fairly simple would the two Radeon cards win in performance over my GTX card or should stick with only one card? Plus in a not so far distant future I am planning on buying the LG's 34" UltraWide...
