Will putting in another GPU fk up my monitors ?


Currntly letting my pc run for Folding@Home.
I am using a MSI RX 480 8G but i havee a Gigabyte 1060 3GB which i wont be using for a while.
So my question is:
Will my pc freak out if I put in the 1060 in the second PCIe slot?
Will my monitors still do their work normally?
Will my games try and run on the second GPU?
Maybe there is a way i can set the GPU to inactive or something, i have no idea?


It is such a power waste to use a whole other pc for that.

I am here to learn, please correct me if im wrong or you see me putting bs on your screen!

Well the monitors won’t be attached to the card, so the monitors won’t care how many cards are in there.
