  • I assume you want to use both cards to boost your PC's performance and I think the answer is that you most certainly can't, as far as I know computers don't or can't balance processing loads between different GPUs per se, the only way the do it is via SLI (for NVIDIAS) or CrossFire (for Radeons) which require the cards being of the same specs, RAM, frequency (radeons) or ultimately just the same (nvidias) and this require a special set of drivers too. Not to mention you can only do this with either 2-4 NVIDIAS or Radeons, but not both of them. – arielnmz Feb 22 '15 at 18:01
  • thank you i was just wondering but i would be better of selling it than – peter Feb 22 '15 at 18:07
  • You can sell the older one and use the other – arielnmz Feb 22 '15 at 18:09

I'm afraid you can't use the two cards together to increase your performance. Theres also no benefit to putting both into your computer.
