SLI 570 GTS and GT220 what will I need to do?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so I am getting 2 of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...YTE-_-14125354 on Monday is what I was just told.
So i cannot post benchmarks until January 6th becuase they are for my P67A-UD7, BUT I have a few questions for you guys.

I can use my GT220 for Physx right? The drivers will detect a 3rd card and just allow me to use it for physx.? I don't need a three way SLI bridge, right? beucase my GT220 doesn't even have a SLI connector.

Do you think its beneficial to even use teh third card for physx? as it will take 16x,16x with NF200 to 16x,8x,8x? I think it will hurt performance.

These cards are just for benching, so what would you do with em, what configuration?

The GT220 is too weak for Physx (and basically anything else gaming-related), certainly at any resolutions you will be running with 570 SLI. The baseline card you want for Physx is GT240.

The GT220 will probably be too weak. I thought the newer cards (Fermi) all had Physx. Still, don't waste you're money and get that GT220 or GT240. It's not worth it. Oh yeah, you might also want to change GTS to GTX because they will probably not have a GTS470.

I already own the GT220 and i think it games wonderfully at BF2 LOL. The GTS570s are review samples. So i thin kthey want them called GTS. Anyways i will try both configs and see if its a hinderance in benchmarking.
