Sli gtx 275 + 9800gt?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

I plan on maybe using a friend's 9800GT on my sigrig, together with my SLI 275s for PhysX.

1. Would it work? and if so, Would it give me a nice boost?

2. Will my PSU be able to handle all of this load?

3. In case the answer to the previous answers is "Yes", since I ran outta PCI-e 6pin connectors, I should be able to use PCI-e to Molex converters to power up the 9800GT and shouldnt have any problems with it, Correct??

4. A PhysX card can run fine on a PCI-e 4x slot, right..?

Thank you

I've tried this and I've noticed no performance boost.

I had 2 evga 275's in sli with a 8800 for physics before upgrading to a 570. Honestly, I didn't notice much of a difference with the dedicated physics card when i ran sli 275's. Having all three cards raised the heat in my case a lot as well. Just thought I would chime in with my experience. Hope it helps a little.
