Can I use a GTX 560ti alongside my 5870?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Is it possible to run a GTX 560ti strictly for encoding, folding, and physx while my 5870 does all of the actual display work? I haven't been doing that much gaming lately, but I would like to be able to use the GPU to encode videos and fold. Any input would be appreciated.

Bob

Where is the best place to get a hold of drivers that will work in this situation?
