Gaming With PCI-E 16x & Mining on Riser at the same time.

I am new here and just know mining a few day ago.

My Question is

Can i gaming on my pcie 16x and

Add 1 or 2 graphic card on my another 2 pcie(short one) for mining at the same time by RISER

, online rarely got this kind of info.

I using nicehash for mine and i found nicehash can close specific card off for mining.(because it use my cpu to mine at the same time and i close it)

Before this, i have a pc with i3 and gtx 1050 on my pcie 16x on my H-motherboard.
With a monitor with 1366 x 768 resolution, this spec is enough for most of the game at high or even ultra on specific game.

And before i know mining i only knew 1070,1080 is for 2K and 4K monitor only.And i don think worth it, until i know mining...

I planning to buy a 1060/480 to try first,and if this can not work , it will be a big waste for me since i'm just a student...

Pls let me know this setting can be work or not if anyone of u guys tried this before.
THANK YOU!!!

  1. You dont say what spec your PC is (motherboard and CPU), but most only have 16 lanes. So you can run your main card as 8x (plenty for gaming) and the other cards x4

    Thanks for ur answer.My spec is this:

    i3-2100
    Asus H61M-A

    The motherboard have
    1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16
    2 x PCIe 2.0 x1

    and this motherboard does not have usb3.0, only 2.0
