Hello everyone.
I want to know if I can install two Graphics card in my system.
Actually this is not meant for gaming, I'm going to use these cards for parallel processing using GPU. (running Caffe, a deep learning framework which runs the computation using GPUs)
I cant afford buying a GTX980, its too expensive where I live. other cards with 4Gigs of Ram such as GTX960 strix?! seem to be faulty like GTX970 when it comes to memory utilization (It seems beyond 3.5G the performance is terrible , something like that, I'm not sure what exactly the problem is though!)
so whats left to use is like the low end GT730 4G.
So I was wondering if its possible I can use two cards with this mother board, I couldn't tell myself from the specification (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/H87ME/specifications/).

By the way I can Only use Nvidia Cards, because of Cuda support.
Any help is greatly appreciated. (any suggestion that you think might be handy is as well appreciated and welcomed)

Nothing wrong with a GTX960 4GB, only the 970 has 3.5GB fast memory + 0.5GB slow

The Motherboard you linked only has one x16 slot so only one GPU can be used with that.

This. Unless you are interested in some creative modding...
