So, I've done some reading and looked up some stuff but want to know if anybody has any personal experience running two different cards. No, I am not trying to get SLI like benefits.Simply another card to set as my encoder when i record or to use strictly to render so i can play games as I render. Any tips? Is it worth it? This wouldn't be a thought if i wasn't able to get a 980 for an ridiculously low price.
