GTX 1080 on Freesync, AMD GPU

I have a Freesync panel, and a GTX 1080. What I was wondering is can I get a cheapass AMD freesync supported GPU, plop it in my second PCIe slot, plug the monitor into that and choose to render with my GTX 1080. With freesync of course, I have not seen anything like this accept with the APUs. Also would I get a big performance hit?

No, that's not how graphical processing works.  You cannot run a 1080 and a rx card and expect to run the 1080 'through' the rx card somehow and use freesync.  You would either have to use a 1080 with a g-sync panel, or an rx card with a freesync panel (other than this shit). 

Just sell your 1080 and get a radeon card or sell your monitor and get a g-sync one in the future.

 

I might not know what I'm talking about but I'm gonna say it anyways

 

Try using the PSU Tier List!

the monitor is going to need to be plugged into the 1080 if you intend to use it to display an image

this setup you describe would only work if you were rendering something like effects on the gpu and not using it for a display

only very few games allow you to select what GPU to render the game on, so that's largely impossible.

Huh, how does that work with the APU then?

The way linus did it was through windows, not sure if the Nvidia driver control panel could do that, its got an option to change openGL rendering GPU. Though. MInecraft XD

Because if integrated graphic present on the system with Window 10(1709 or over) it will detect it as Power-Saving GPU when you plug in the monitor into that iGPU.

But there are no third party programs to do so? [forgot to quote]

This is not possible.
