    Hi, I currently have 1 Nvidia GT 520 GPU installed in my machine and I am going to purchase a GT640 card and was wondering if I was to have both cards in the machine (using the GT640 as the primary card connected to my single monitor) would the secondary GT520 (which is not connected to the new card as they dont have SLI) contribute in any way to the performance of my machine and its games or would it just be a dead card doing nothing but spinning its fan and taking power? Many thanks :confused:
