Default A few questions on Linux.

Ok, maybe this is the wrong forum for it, if it is, sorry

First of all, is it possible to run more than one GPU at the same time? (AMD card(s))
I get the message that it detected only "one device".
Secondly, is there a similar utility to check GPU usage? (like what GPU-Z has), and also for fan control?
Also... I think tty is on the wrong resolution, when I do Ctrl+Alt+F1, the screen just goes blank...is there a way to change it? Maybe I can check this on google..

EDIT: I am not afraid of the terminal, I've used it quite a lot.

Thanks

NVIDIA cards now have a fairly decent driver support - including temperatures and fan sensors. (nvidia-settings and nvidia-smi, e.g.
nvidia-smi -a | egrep -w "C|Used|Fan"
^--this command line works for me. You can wrap it into an alias.)

But for ATI cards (don't have them neither at home nor at work), well, there are probably equivalents - you may want to look for them. There's also lm-sensors.org ...

Yeah, I heard nvidia has temperature and fan sensors, I hope amd has something like that I'm still curious on a tool that will check gpu usage (as noted above, like GPU-Z)
