Two independant GPU's, one system.


If I were trying to build a PC that could have a strong gaming performance and the ability to run GPU intensive programs i.e. Solidworks, should I use a GTX 1080 for gaming and a Quadro p2000 for CAD (they are my preferred cards based on my budget) or is their another card or method I should try that would get similar results in both Gaming and CAD. 

If I were to use a a gtx1080 and p2000 how would I go about having them in the same system but running independently ( not necessarily simultaneously tho.)

I'm trying to avoid building two systems with two CPUs, Motherboards, etc. and keep total cost low, I'm in High school so money is not plentiful at the moment. 


Thanks for any help I can get.

Hey there.

GPU's like the p2000 are not aimed at gaming, they're aimed CAD as you said. But that doesn't mean you can't game on them. Buying a p2000 will serve you well in CAD and in gaming. You can check some benchmarks. There is no need in buying 2 different GPU's I think.

Have a nice day.
