Here is my problem: I want to have Cuda assisted 4k editing capabilities in Adobe Premiere and After Effects as well as 10bit colour on my Dell u2711. The problem is that only Nvidia cards can hardware accelerate Adobe apps, and only Quadro cards offer 10bit support. The $800 Quadro K4000 doesn't have enough Cuda cores to do 4k, only the $2500 k5000 does.
Possible solution: I could put a $300 Geforce (a 760 or 770 would be blazing fast) and a $180 Quadro k600 together in the machine (though NOT in SLI), use the GTX for cuda acceleration and the Quadro to drive the display. If this is possible then I get the cuda performance and 10 bit colour of a k5000 for $500, plus some gaming performance.
Question: I am a radeon guy and I have no idea if this is doable, though it seems like it is. Has anyone had any experience with using mixed driver nvidia cards together?
Thanks in advance.
