2way SLI + dedicated physx card?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi. Had a quick question. Would it be better to run 2 570's in sli alone or 2 570's in sli with a 3rd card (lesser model) for physx?

If the latter is better, what would be a good 3rd card for physx processing? Something that will be able to keep up with the 2 570's?

Thanks! smile.gif

i run 2 580's and a 9800gtx+ for physx, but its mainly used for powering monitors outside of my sli (ie not surround) and folding 24/7. also the 9800gtx+ was laying around

just go 2 570's. there are like 20 games that use physx and you have heard of 3 and played 1 is my guess. its a waste of money unless you have a 8800gt or better laying around. save your money and put it towards a ssd or something better.

fill out your computer profile also to allow us to better help you.

hope this helps
