Then I figured...I don't really want to build another rig so then I thought about Physx and have seen other sig rigs that have ATI/AMD cards with an nvidia used for Physx.

My questions to you all is...is this necessary? What are the advantages to using this left over card of mine for Physx, why would I need to do it, etc.? Also, would my PSU be able to handle both the 6950s and the 260?

in your sig it looks like it says you have Eight 6950's rolleyes.gif

Ah, forgot about that...haven't been able to put in my cards yet since I'm waiting for both to arrive today so I didn't think about space.

Luckily it looks like I don't have to worry about physx then because I will only have to not install Hot Dance Party lol. Thanks for the help everyone. Also...dunno how it looks like i have 8 6950s (the &?)
