Hello, I have recently adquired a Nvidia 3060 TI in place of my good old GeForce GTX 970. Problem is, because of the scarcity I took the only model available and it's only have 1 HDMI and 3 DisplayPort.
I want to know if install my old GeForce GTX 970 to be able to use two different screen via HDMI :
1)Will everything just work fine without any conflict.
2) Do I need to install some specific drivers or program to be able to run both GPU ?


Thanks in advance.

FYI I use Windows 10 with a AMD Ryzen Processeur.

Mainly depends on your PSU.
RTX 3060 ti is 200W, GTX 970 is 150W. To run them both, recommended PSU is 700W - 750W PSU minimum.

With low quality, insufficient PSU you'll most likely kill your entire pc.

Nvidia geforce drivers are required for both cards.

It should be ok, but running two GPUs are not ideal anyway. How about getting a DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter off Amazon for a few bucks, then just using the 3060 ti alone?
