this thread.

I love the new trend of folks sharing info they don't actually know or understand, then doing so from a point of emphatic truth speaking that makes the even more unknowing believe them without question.

This is why Identity politics are run amuck.

OP -

you'll be fine.

no sli.

Nvidia and AMD both do a good job of allowing multiple generations of cards in the same system.




I did it with a 1080 TI and a gtx 770. Each drove a single monitor just fine.
Yeah no that's not how it works. I'm starting to remember why I left this forum for years and it's because no one has the slightest ******* clue what they're talking about.

You act like we need to blessed by your presence and shower you in praise for incorrect information. If you don't want to be here, then don't. I'm sure we'll all move on.

If you're unable to comprehend I can throw my GTX 950 in my machine along with my 1080 Ti and show you that they use the same singular driver, just say the word.

Yeah it’s everyone else that’s wrong.
That’s exactly how it works.

Check this PDF. You'll see that the same driver supports GPUs back to the 600 series. This info is direct from Nvidia.

What would you suggest and why is it a waste?

Right now if I have two monitors on one 970 and two monitors on the other 970. If I'm playing a game and watching a Netflix show on the two monitors hooked up to one GPU my frames dip down to single digits if there's a lot on the screen. If I move the video to the other GPU then my frames do ok around the high 20's since I split the workload between two GPUs.

What I'd like to do is take advantage of my 1440p and game on it at a decent frame rate, which I can't do now. That's why I figured using the single 1440p on a RTX 2070 and hook the other three 1080p monitors up to a single 970 would do good.

By all means if you think a 2070 can handle 1440p gaming and three 1080p monitors with YouTube/Netflix playing while gaming and still give decent frames I'll go with just one card. I don't know much on GPU's, but I can't see a single card being able to handle all that since my two gen old card falls way short.

Please let me know of a possible better setup. Thanks.

Why bother doing so. Just plug the other monitor to your motherboard and turn on the integrated GPU. This way you won't lose x16 mode on the card.

I don't see any reason not to use the 970, sure you loose x16 but if you're watching movies while gaming there's obviously going to be a performance hit somewhere so x8 is negligible.
The performance hit from having a single card run 3 monitors while running a game on a 1440p panel is surely more than the performance hit from having a 970 deal with the video.
I'd just try it.

Isn’t the performance hit between x16 and x8 negligible anyways?
