I am current having a highend GPU installed in my server - and I am considering to install a cheap GPU to support the monitor.
Reason is that the server is using the highend GPU for OpenCL and i would like to reserve its resources for only calculations and not feeding the monitor. The motherboard has a PCI-E x8 (Gen2 X4 Link) slot.
Can I install a cheap GPU like ZOTAC GeForce GT 610 (512 MB), and use that as the main gpu for the monitor and then the highend gpu will be free for calculations.
I ask because i havent tried this before and i dont know how the OS (Windows Server) see the two cards and if i can select which GPU it should use for the monitor.
Alternative: If i dont plug in any monitor and control it by remote desktop from another pc, will it use gpu resources ?
My main problem is that if the calculations are long the OS stops the calculations because it think its stuck.
