Gtx 1070 compatible with 2 graphic cards

I'm sorta new to pc gaming. my pc has 8 gbs of ram, with a i7 7700k processor, a gtx 1070 mini on a mini atx case, and a 500 watt power supply all on a gigabyte lga1151 micro atx motherboard . While the performance is okay I wanted to buy another gtx 1070 mini and put it together with the other. While putting it on a bigger case and a bigger motherboard . I wanted to know if this was possible and what'd I need to do it.

  3. I'd highly advice against this. Right now, GTX 1070 prices are inflated due to the uptake in cryptocurrency mining, so whereas 1070s used to cost ~$380, they're now up to $450+, with some models nearing $500. I honestly think that for the performance you're looking for, the best value card would be a GTX 1080 Ti. The cheapest ones are around $700-720. If you consider how much money you'll have spent on your first 1070 + another at current prices, you'll end up at basically the same price as a 1080 Ti (and maybe more). The 1080 Ti will give you comparable raw performance to SLI 1070s, but with lower power consumption, more VRAM and no reliance on SLI compatibility.

  4. I dissagree with that the 1070 gives the best proformance for dollar in the higher end cards with two of them it will roughly equal a 1080 just wait till the prices come down and buy a 1070

  6. Would I be able to add a gtx 1080 to the 1070 mini or would I have to stick with the 1070 mini

    Everything you just typed out was preemptively dismissed in my last post, for good reason. If I need to be more clear for you to understand what I meant, here it is: The GTX 1070 is overpriced right now. The GTX 1080 Ti's price has barely increased at all. Therefore, RIGHT NOW, a GTX 1080 Ti is a better buy. The OP could sell his card for around $400, put in ~$300-350 (which is still less than a new 1070), buy the higher-end card and end up with a much more reliable solution. No having to rely on SLI compatibility, lower power consumption, etc etc. And I'm not someone trying to dismiss going the SLI route; I upgraded from SLI Titan X to SLI Titan X Pascal, so it's not like I have some bias against it.

    I'm also not making suggestions based on some future outlook, I'm making them based on what the GPU market is like right now.
