So I looked at the single slot GTS 450 that ken1649 suggested and decided I could spend the same money on a Corsair 400R case with 8 expansion slots and use a GTX 460 I have laying around as my PhysX card. Seems like a better value proposition. Thanks again for the help. I'll let everyone know how it turns out.

BTW ken1649, this is totally OT, but how in the hell do you have more than 2,700 posts since June? That is some serious dedication!

Hey guys thanks so much for your replys! they've really helped me out. Just one more thing haha. So I still got like 20 days left to return my 6950 and I recently came across another hundred dollars. You guys think I should return it and upgrade? If so do you have any suggestions? Or do you think Im set and will be good for skyrim and arkham city. Maybe I should get another 6950? Maybe I should switch to Nvidia I don't know. What do you guys think?

oh about the case, you could try and mod your card, maybe some can answer this better than I can, but if you remove the back of the card it will leave the terminals at a open circut, but if im not mistaken all physics is done through pci express. you dont need expansion slots on your old case. Unless of course your old case sucks, and corsairs well are better than suck. Make sure with some electronics genius before you attempt, its just a idea I have not tried this.

a 460 seem like a lot for physics, I though ddr5 and 1gb memory seems fine, or is physics processed all at the cores. Trying to get a system set for 6970 x fire liquid. after thinking 6970 x2 with liquid oh no have to get a 200.00 dollar physics card. Wondering if anyone has tried this 6970 x 2 water cooled with gts 450 with physics turned back.

Some people are HELPFUL and give back by posting often trying to help others out. and it doesn't seem like THAT many posts to me ... it's only TWO AND A HALF TIMES mine in that same time period

I am learning how to type and after 2,700 posts can't say the skill is improving

Anything from 6950 is a side-grade instead of upgrade. Not very good at how to spend money wisely but if you like, we could help to spend it with style. Yea I know not a good advice.

This video shows how a lower card will bottleneck a single GTX580. Don't you think the same will apply to 3-Way-SLI 580 + Lower end PhysX Card? Or Cross/Tri/Quad-Fire + lower end PhysX?

Thanks Petey for the response. My problem with my current case is that the open PCI-E slot is located right at the edge of the motherboard (P8P67 Deluxe) and I simply do not have enough room between the power supply and slot to squeeze in a double height card. While I am sure I could get real creative with modifying the card, I just don't consider the risk worth it. I am presently using a CoolerMaster HAF 912 and it is a decent enough case, I do however prefer Corsair cases (I have two others). At the time, I liked the price of the HAF 912 a lot better and the 400R did not even exist yet.

The GTX 460 I am planning to use is not being used in anything else anyways. I would rather use it for something (even if it is only PhysX) then just sitting in my basement doing nothing. Plus, I think it will help me overcome bottlenecking on my xFire system.
