    If I have two GPUs in my system and I want to only mine with GPU1 and not GPU0, is this possible do configure using the nvidia.txt?

    Yes, you select the GPU to be used with index parameter. The ones not configured for with their index are not used. So let xmrstak autoconfigure and then delete the part for GPU you don't want to use.

    I see. So is it normal for Windows to become very unresponsive/laggy when GPU mining?
