Today is (I hope) a good day for me and that's why I have some questions for you (more experienced "force") users biggrin.gif

Got myself a present and it looks like this -->
five_pictures1_20100712103622_m.jpg

I haven't even unpacked it yet because I wanted to be sure that what I will do is correct and I won't end with my rig "finished" (burnt) by me :/
That would be inappropriate the first day of using new toy wink.gif

So, first of all I wanted to check whether it is possible to put 2 cards ( I am trying to sell my "old" 260 GTX but right now nobody wants to buy it frown.gif
into 1st and 3rd PCI-E slots and not to fry my entire rig... (I have daubts that it may be too stressful for my PSU, so I have to be 100 % sure that I do that right).
Let's say I will put my MSI 460 GTX into the first slot and leave my Asus 260 GTX in the third slot. What I want to do is to use my ASUS as a main PhysX "module" (I can't find proper word). I just want to try if it gonna give me additional performance boost smile.gif
Maybe it sounds a little bit silly but I have never tried it and I don't want to mess it all up.

This is a screenshot of my actual MSI Afterburner and nVidia PhysX configuration. When I put this additional card will I be able to choose which card has to handle PhysX ? And is it worth? Will it give me any extra boost in performance?

Afterburner20.jpg

My second question:
I have read carefully Mastiffman's guide to enabling "Unofficial Overclocking" in MSI Afterburner ( thanks for this guide!!!)
Of course all of you know that there is a new MSI Afterburner 2.1.0 beta 6 which allows to control all voltages that means:
core voltage, memory voltage and (mystery for me) AUX voltage (I hope I wrote it correctly).

My question is ... when I start to change all of these values (which I am going to do right after my new card "lands" in a slot) is it better to:
1) take out my Asus first and let windows 7 identifies my new card (maybe I should uninstall nvidia drivers (though I have latest release) and install them again?
2) how do you think (sorry for this chaotic language today but I am quite excited about my new toy and I can't find proper English words to describe it smile.gif
So, how do you think ... will my PSU handle 2 cards? and when I choose that my main PhysX module will be 260 GTX... will it be safe to overclock my 460 GTX with Afterburner? There won't be any complications because 460 GTX allows to change voltages and my old 260 GTX doesn't ?

Sorry for this long post but I have to be sure when I start to play around with two cards that I don't make any serious mistake. Uff wink.gif

@ Pendrago, You should have enough power to run both cards in that system w/your TX650. You might have to update your bios to properly use the new GPU though.

You don't have to uninstall any drivers just install the new ones over the old "that is the simplicity of Nvidia Drivers" wink.gif.

Yes you can choose any "capable" card installed you wish to use as your PhysX Engine from w/in the Nvidia Control Panel screen you listed up there.

Good Luck,

N2G

P.S. Nice Choice for your GPU thumb.gif

Just look through the thread at what others are using.

Calling others useless is not considered good in these parts. buttkick.gif OCN frowns on that behavior. mad.gif

I hope you're right smile.gif and... I have the most recent BIOS - v 1.6. unless you say about updating my GPU's BIOS ?

Yeah! wink.gif Quite an improvement with this new "clean install" option (though I always uninstall drivers and getting rid of what left of them using Driver Sweeper)... it has to be perfect in my case ;> (I know it won't be but it's just a habit of mine cool.gif).

I have noticed you've got the same card (or a set of these MSI GPUs).
Are you satisfied with your choice? I mean what are they overclocking potential? (I have read that they are very good, are very quiet and have low temperatures even under heavy load).

So, you got 2 x 460 GTX connected through SLI, right? and the one with 768 MB is PhysX "module" just as I wrote? Is it going to give me any special boost in performance? Because I assume that it could be utilized mainly (or only) in some hardware demanding games.

Thanks a lot. biggrin.gif
One last question (I haven't installed this card yet) ... What about this "AUX" voltage slider in new version of MSI Afterburner? What does it do? How can I use it ?
