The cards have to match to work correctly, meaning you would need 2 of the same card designed to work together.

Look online for info on running cards in SLI mode. (crossfire for ATI cards)
It's a good boost to performance, but will need a strong power supply.

While it's good for video performance, (gaming or rendering) you can normally just pick up a better card and get nearly the same boost with less hassle.

I'd probably just move to a RTX 2060s or higher, less heat, lower power consumption, higher performance > https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compar...980/4049vs2576
