Hi.

I have a pc with b450 steel legend mb, ryzen 5 3600 and radeon gt 5600 xt.
Recently a friend gave me a rxt 3090 gpu, but i just dont need so much power.

I use mi actual gpu for mining cripto when im not playing.

so my question is, can i install 2 gpu in this mb with a pcie extensor or something cause they two are to big for the space,?
In that case can i let the new rxt 3090 just mining i dont care if i cant use it, while i use my other 5600 xt for playing?
what do i need to achieve this

or i just i need another mb to do this?

Thanks, sorry for my english
 
Where can i find a friend who has such a kind heart to gift me a rtx 3090? xD
Jokes aside,you can physically install them for looks but you cant run them both.
You need 2 same cards for them to work,and 5600Xt and 3090 are way different.
People have had trouble running the same model of cards just other manufacturer,let alone 2 different brands like AMD and NVIDIA.

By run you mean i cant use both? I just need windows detect the gpu for Nicehash use it to mine (3090) i dont wanna use it for anything else, meanwhile i use my 5600 xt to play.

I mean if i need to change the motherboard ill do, but i need to know
Or just buy another full pc just for mining with it
