2 GPUs one only for mining one for gaming

Hello guys, i have 2 gpus an EVGA Titan X 6gb and a Radeon 6850. I would like to use the 6850 for gaming and just only for that, while using the titan only for mining. Is it possible to let the titan mine, while having no preformance impact on the titan? Im using nicehash

Any Help is appricated! Please correct me if I´m wrong!

Sorry for grammer/spelling mistakes, but english is not my native language (it´s german in case you were curious) *expand to see builds*


Primary PC: CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3600 | GPU: Crossfire Radeon 6870 + 6850 | RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance 2X16 = 32GB @ 3600MHZ DDR4 | MOBO: ASUS ROG STRIX B450-F | COOLER: COOLER MASTER ML360R | CASE: DEEPCOOL Matrexx 55 V3 ADD-RGB | PSU: GIGABYTE P850GM 80+ GOLD | SDD: CRUCIAL MX500 250GB |

Everything thats not colourful I haven't bought yet.


Secondary PC(Currently not operational): CPU:  INTEL Q8200S @ 2.33Ghz | GPU: GTX 750 ti / 760 | RAM: 4X2 = 8GB @ 800MHZ DDR2 OCZ Platinum | MOBO: ASUS P5E-VM SE | COOLER: Be Quiet! Silent Loop 280* | CASE: DEEPCOOL Matrexx 55 V3 ADD-RGB* | PSU: CORSAIR RM850 2019 80+ GOLD* | SSD: CRUCIAL MX500 250GB* 

Everything marked with * is what I bought for the Primary PC and I'm just using it until I get all the parts.

As long as you make sure games use the 6850, just telling nicehash to mine on only the Titan should work. I believe you can set the default GPU in Settings > System > Display > Graphics Settings (it may be somewhere else, but there should be a menu that lets you select the GPU.) Like this:
Windows 10 to give power users more control over their GPUs

why no dark mode?
