Adding a second video card

Envy Phoenix 860-100nl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi to everybody!

I have an Envy 860-100nl with nVidia 960 GTX 2 Gb video card, M.B. HP 2B4B (U3E1) chipset Skylake Z170, CPU i7 6700K, 16 Gb RAM, win 10 Home 64 bit.

To improve performance with program that manage point cloud, I wish to add a second video card (still nVidia).

Do you know which cards are compatible with my system?

The GTX 960 is on x16 PCI slot and I have free the x1 and x4 slot: if I add a second video card better than 960 is it good to move the 960 in one of the two slot (which one?) e set the new card on x16 slot?

Thank you.

Motherboard does NOT have second slot for a video card therefore you can't add another video card. Some motherboards have TWO slots (must be x16) for 2 video cards and normally BOTH cards are the same to run SLI (Nvidia)

 

You can't move GTX 960 to other slot, it won't fit.
