Hey guys,
I have a 5700xt, no problem there works great. I also have my older 1070 laying around that I had meant to put on ebay since last year and hadn't gotten around to it. Today I thought, hey, I have the PSU for it, why not use the 1070 for some mining? I plugged it in but now I'm nervous about installing drivers for it. Like if I install the drivers for the 1070 am I gonna have trouble with games trying to use it instead of the 5700xt, or are the drivers gonna step on each others toes?

Thanks for any help in advanced.
