Running Dual GPU's

nuleyy_

So in the future, I am planning on getting a new GPU. I currently have the MSI Geforce GTX 1650 and would like to get the MSI Geforce GTX 1660 Ti. I've read that it is pretty beneficial to run dual GPU's, but I am concerned that my 450W power supply will not be able to support both the GPU's at the same time. My current build uses around 259W according to pcpartpicker.com. So, should I buy a new power supply or will my current one be enough power for both GPU's at the same time?

Who told you that?

The videocards can't work together, having an extra monitor attached to your main videocard has little to no concequence and only doing stuff like 1080p60fps YouTube + game with unlocked fps can have the video lose frames.

 

So why do you want multiple videocards in your system?

I don't know how old the article about the benefits from dual gpus are but in today dual GPU set ups bring little to nothing good on the table if you want not graphics designing or using high memory tasks with high bandwidth  also if you mean benefits in gaming etc or having more vram or dual 1660ti as one well you can forgrt about that because dual gpus don't work that way lol

SLI is mostly done for for normal customers while CF is completely dead. These days the only reason to use dual GPU is on laptops, running iGPU for saving power and dGPU for speed.

How does dedicating an older GPU for physx work?

 

Anyone try it out?
