Hi there

I currently have 2x 7950's that I use for gaming as well as mining. I would, however, like to buy a new R9 290x when it comes with a custom cooler to use this as the primary card. That means that I will occasionally mine with it (whenever im not using the computer) and then leave the 2x 7950's mining 24/7. Is this possible? Using different GPU's in the same computer?

Kind regards

Perfectly possible. 

I used to run a 5870, 6970, 7850 and 7950 all in one machine.

Perfect, just what I needed to know, thanks Smiley

EDIT: On a side note, what setup would be best for my air flow / heat management?

Im thinking the following, if I plug one of my 7950's into a x1 -> x16 riser - this shouldn't affect mining afaik?

Alright thanks, do you agree on how I set them up? With as much space in between as possible

Surely the more space in between them the better. You also need to have some exhaust fan and intake fan and your good Smiley
