using a old GPU with a secondary monitor

No probably not, it really doesn't require any GPU power to drive a secondary display, so I doubt you would see any sort of difference between running 1 or 2 GPU's, the only difference you'll see is in your electric bill.

So I own a gtx 660 and I am planning to buy a new gpu. I have 2 monitors whitch i game on 1. Is it worth keeping my old GPU just to run my second monitor and playing games purely on my main monitor with a new GPU? Thanks
