Windows 7: Gtx 460 + 8800gt (Physx)

Gtx 460 + 8800gt (Physx)

Hey guys,

I have a few questions,bullet pointed.

I currently have a GTX 460 768mb graphics card,Its awesome!,But i also have a Asus 8800GT Graphics card lying around unused.

  • Do you think pairing a GTX 460 + a 8800GT for Dedicated Physx would be a good idea?

It would mean id have to get another mobo with 2x Pci-e X16 slots but on ebay there are occasionally good deals and i could sell my old one.

  • Also would i still get DX11 if i used a DX10 card for Physx?

  • Would the 8800GT bottleneck the 460?

  • Could my power supply handle the load? (OCZ StealthXStream 600w)

Running an 8800GT as a Physx card would be fine. You'd still get DX11 capabilities in DX11 games, as well as some increase in performance if you're playing heavy Physx games such as Mafia 2. It won't bottleneck your 460. Once you get it up and running. Just have a search for some Physx reviews for a general idea.
