Hello!
So I recently bought a new pc, loving it so far. Was thinking a bit ahead today and planning to get a second GPU for some GPU rendering in Redshift/Octane next year.

I was reading the specs of my PSU (Corsair Vengeance 750m), and in the specs sheet it states;
Multi-GPU Ready : No

Does this only apply to SLI configurations? Because I won't be using SLI/Crossfire. I just want the extra CUDA cores.

Will I need to get a new Power Supply if I want to have more than one gpu?

Thanks so much!

What are you current system's specs? List them like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

And also state the age of your PSU. You might also run into the issue about your board no supporting multi-GPU's not to mention that a higher TDP GPU while crossfired or LSI'd will draw more power, regardless of whether the PSU is multi GP ready or not.
