Yes, when I had a 6500 and my 5000A they co-existed peacefully.

The only complications to running them both, have to do with available antenna connections and Windows desktop screen real estate. As long as the PC is fast enough to handle running both PowerSDR and SmartSDR at the same time. Mines a 2 year old i7-4790K with 16GB of RAM, with 2 24" monitors. Running both is never an issue. You won't likely need, quite that much PC.

That's great to here. I am running a quad core processor with 32gb ram and 4gb video card. The Monitor is 32 in so I should be ok. Thanks for the info I still have a lot to learn about the 6300 and smart sdr quite a change.

Wow! 
Wish I had your PC, or at least your RAM.
You will not have many issues running both!
