Hello, I'm sure this has been asked but I can't find the answer. Is there any advantage to runs 2 GPUs on 1 pc? 1 of my motherboards has 2 full length slots.

Yes, there is an advantage.

The only thing to look out for is that each GPU thread will use a small portion of a CPU. The amount will depend on the GPU/CPU combo. For example, my 3.6GHz threadripper with a GTX1050 uses about 20% of a core, whereas my 3.3GHz core i5 with a GTX 1660 uses about 40% of a core.
