even still you may want to consider something more for the physx, maybe a 450 or 550?

that isn't tri-sli. that is just sli with a dedicated physx gpu

and i would just leave out the 9800, it isnt important and will just limit your mobo options

9800gt will slow the rig down. 480s where ok in sli but 580 so much cooler (watercooled both setups) Just the power to run the dam thing is out rage also to has sli play nice is a diffent thing, I like a fast single card.
x58 is best but cost more to run, sandy 2500k @ 4ghz + or 2600k, i would go water cooling a 360 rad would cool it all off. mcw60 and 80 fit on 480 only the mcw60 fits on 580 (80 is to big)
mcw655 or 3XX for pump $30-60
1/2 fittings and 7/16 tubing $40+
Mcw60 for gpu , cheap used i got 2 for $30
heatkillers (or your cpu block, the k2500 is lower heat then i7 X58 where) ~$60
3 gt 1850 fans for rad ~$45
360 rad that u like. ~$60-100
Need a res too thats what looks best for you.
700d case is nice for water cooling, haf932 was good too,
Need a 750+ watt power Make sure a good one. tx750 ax 850 something like thos.

I think this thread should help answer some of the questions raised about the use of a medium-grade dedicated PhysX card with a nice high-end SLI set.

Personally I believe you'd have a use a WILDLY underpowered PhysX card (vs. your SLI set) to actually see a drop in FPS from it's deployment.
