as far as 750W... would think it should be ok if your not OC'd a bunch. I always figured if it's got the cable it should support it LOL.

I just did this a couple days ago. Need more physx games.
The more the better I agree!! if this works like I hope it should it will be great I can have the best of both world. The red and the green like to peas in a pod. Now that cool beans !! or cool peas. *LOL*

I was just checking it out and it looks like my card I got used the (4870x2) came with with a Accelero cooler and the guy had a 6 to 8 pin adapter for the 8 pin plug on the GPU board so now my six pin power plugs are all used. :-( I would have a 8 pin free, well sort of, it's buried but I could get it out. I would need another adapter and I don't think I have one. I am just going to wait till my stuff get here on Wednesday. My Swiftech Caldera and my new CM 1250 watt PSU then I will just get the right stuff plugged in like it should be. The Accelero has the adapter or extensions trapped or I could have plugged it in the right way. I thought it was funny I did not have to use the 8 pin plug when I put the 4870x2 in OH well.

I will report back when my stuff comes in but thanks to every one for the help! You guys are the BEST!!!!

My rig is Q6600@3.0GHz
Gigabyte GA-X38-DS5
ATI HD 5850
750W PSU
can I use my old 8800GTS 512 as PhysX processing Unit.
Please let me know the clear details of it.
My PSU is fine for using Dual GPU or not.

Yes you should be able to run PhysX with that card.

You will notice a difference when running Physx games, because ATI card alone does not have the ability to render Physx. You won't see a big boost in regular non-Physx related games per say. I have noticed in demanding applications it will use the memory from both cards ie Crysis will use more than 1GB of RAM. Here is a link to the other ATI+Nvidia thread where there are some benchmarks with 3DMark Vantage with and without Physx enabled. This is about where the benchmarks start. This should give you an idea of what the performance could be with a 5850 and 8800GTS. [CyGnus] at first used 9500GT and a 5870 with this mod. My guess is you will have a benchmark performance between [CyGnus] and mine.

Note: overclocking both GPU's and the CPU will change the benchmark performance. You may find that 3.0GHz clock on the Q6600 might need to be increased. I encourage you to read through this entire thread and the one I linked above. I hope this helps you out.

I've been debating as to whether I should drop $25 to get a x16 to x1 adaptor, and sticking my 8500GT in there. Would it really be worth it?

Check to see if your PCIe x1 slots are open back.

IF they are not, just carefully cut the back out of them and make them an open back slot, then you can put your GPU in the slot no problem.

I know you can do that, but I really don't want to resort to that. I will lul it over.

I cant over clock after that more .I dont have CPU cooling.It is overclocked on Stock cooler.

It's just a suggestion not a must. If you have performance that isn't to your liking, it is something to think about in the future. There are really good aftermarket air cpu coolers for $55 or less. I paid about $25 dollars for mine after shipping. Just changing the PC case I was using dropped my cpu temps by 9C.
