Question Can I hook up two different GPUs (one nvidia and one amd) to the same board and drive two different displays (a monitor and a TV)?

I currently have a 1080ti only and a g-sync monitor. Happy with that. But what if I added a radeon rx card solely for the purpose for playing games on a new freesync enabled samsung tv?

You can use your Nvidia with freesync enabled TVs and monitors. Support varies but it does work most of the time.
How to enable NVIDIA G-Sync on a FreeSync display
Not really, TVs don't have DisplaytPort and nvidia doesn't do FreeSync over HDMI.

You absolutely can have another GPU for other monitor/TV. But bare in mind that your TV might only support FreeSync for up to 60Hz=FPS and with a decent GPU you'll never hit that low, so it will be a waste. Research your TV's specs first.
The TV I'm looking at (Q70R) supports FreeSync from 48-60 at 4K but 20-120 at 1080/1440.
At 4K that range is meaningful because dipping below 60 is definitely a problem with a single 1080ti, if I can hit 60 at all.
