GTX 970 and 1080ti together?

i have just received my 1080ti and was thinking if i could have both the 1080ti and my 'old' 970 in at the same time, and would there be any benefit from it? 

 

i honestly dont intend on doing this unless the benefit out-weighs getting around £200 back from selling the 970, i am just being curious.

You could use 970 for Physx ... but it would bottleneck 1080ti. 

 

1080ti will be faster by itself. Sell the 970 / give it away to a friend :P

For rendering programs that support it it’s great but otherwise it’s useless. The 970 doesn’t make a difference as a PhysX card and they can’t process a game together. The 970 will just sit and suck extra power. Sell it 

That's an F in the profile pic

thanks for the quick replies, think i will sell the 970 then. 

 

one last stupid question (for now), do i need to pull the plastic film off the back-plate? it looks like it is made to be removed but i don't want to feck anything up
