    Are you planning on running them in SLI? If so I don't think it will work, I think they have to be the exact same version card. If no, why run two cards? Do you have multiple monitors?

    If you only have the one monitor that's the way to go.

    You can use the two together but not as a SLI-system. Use the lowest end card (650) as a dedicated PsyhX-card. If you use this setup the GTX650 will do all the PsyhX works as in the meantime the more powerful 680 is being used to do all the rendering of the games! (except the PsyhX because the 650 will do this for the 680) In this setup you will increase your gaming experience without putting the other card away

    More info and 'how to' in the following link. Happy gaming!

    There's only one PCIe slot on that MB, so one GPU only possible.
