Thread Starter 
Next Year I will plan to build a project of ATi and Nvidia dual Graphic card . So a Stupid idea for you guys ,but i might need to try it first because my friend say you can use ATI for Gfx and Nvidia for PhysX. So guys tell me what kind of Ati and Nvidia card should i combine to get a good result....

I would seriously put some more thought into it. Not many games fully utilize PhysX and new generation nVidia cards are able to handle the load anyway, especially in sli, a separate is not needed for physx.

Just to tell you it is possible to run a Hybrid PhysX setup where the AMD as the main rendering card. I wouldn't ask why you need PhysX but a single 6850 will do fine with something like GTS450.

 

You just need to find the PhysX card to pair up with the main card that will not slow the main card. That's all and no magic in there. Or you just need PhysX for whatever reasons other than gaming, just put in any card that meets your requirement such as for F@H etc.

PhysX is exclusive to Nvidia Cards so it's not better or worse than ATI. PhysX and physics are two different things, don't confuse them.

 

Check this out as what is PhysX
