    Hi

    I have a mac pro 5,1 12 core machine.

    currently running gtx 120 (Boot Screen)
    and 780 ti (Octane render)

    I don't use the 780ti for anything other than its cuda cores to render images.
    i have a large project coming up and i am wondering if i could run the following ?

    i just need my mac to recognise they are there

    pcie slot 4: GTX 120 (Boot screen if the 980 isn't ready)
    pcie slot 3: 4x to 16x riser - GTX 970 or GTX 980 macvidcards. (when its done)
    pcie slot 2: 16x to dual 8x ribbon - Dual GTX 970
    pcie slot 1: 16x to dual 8x ribbon - Dual GTX 780ti

    basicially i don't need to be attaching cords into them. they would be just there to feed octane render.

    In the mining forums which they use cuda aswell they only get 5-10% reduction in performance running similar setups on PC so just curios if this will work on a MAC and if not what is the Maximum?

    PS. I know about power supply this is not the question i am asking...
