I'm currently mining with only 1 MSI R9 280X I'd like to know if I can add a RX480 to my system, I am running Windows 10 and Crimson 15.12 driver.

    No probs good luck with the mining. If you do want to keep the older card, minig Zcash is really good for older cards as on eth they take a big performance hit [or being old] wheras on Zec they perform pretty good. E.g an old 7950 is 50% slower than a RX470 on eth, but on Zec it is only 10% slower.

    Not familiar with Windows but you cannot mix a 280x and a 480 in the same machine if running under Linux. They need different drivers. Maybe possible in Windows.
