Mclovin, could be cause you only have 2x6pin power connectors hooked up to it, maybe?

Hi everyone:

This is my first post in this GREAT forum. So, here is my question I need help with.

I have now 2x EVGA GTX 295 in my case now, and I were wondering if I can add 1x XFX GTX 280 to ONLY run the PhysX? Will this be compatible?

Regards

I know it's not my CPU because it dosent freeze when the gpu is at stock.
are you using 6 + 8 pin to power it? Sounds like your PSU can't handle the 295, or the 295 needs a RMA. But first, I think its a PSU issue. Try a bigger PSU?

just a quick question.
UT3 doesn't seem to be scalin well with the dual GPUs in the 295.
I wanna dedicate one GPU for the graphics an the other for the physics for just that game.

how can I do this???

I just realised that there is one big problem combining 2x GTX 295 and 1x GTX 280, the SLi-connectors! It is not possible to use any SLi-bridge for this combination. Iam I right? or is there any solutions for this? Or do I really need the GTX 280 connected to any SLi-bridge since its just supposed to run the PhysX?

Regards

You don't need a sli-connector to your phys-x card, 7th.

I doubt you can do that, at least not at all easily.

Oh, and you should be able to crank up the res to max on that crt of yours, and absolutely max the settings on UT3, with nv phys-x on, and still get awesome framerates. Why are you worried about how well the card 'scales' anyways? If a game is too easy on the gpu, it won't scale as well in SLI (or a 295, same thing), that's just how it is most of the time.

Now I did try this out without SLi bridge, and it does not work properly. When the computer is about to load the Vista bar on startup, the computer re-starts by itself. So, can this be a question about not having enough power in PSU? I have ThermalTake Toughpower 1200w and motherboard is EVGA x58.

Fill in your system specs, 7th ... that makes it easier for us to help you troubleshoot.

I'd think that psu would be adequate, yes. And I am positive that the problem is *not* a lack of an SLI connector to your phys-x card.

Is there anyone out there currently running quad-sli gtx295's with a phys-x card that can help this guy out?
