Mixing ATI with Nvidia...

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I know it's possible to do so for physx benefits, and i have found several guides, but I haven't found any info on whether or not I would be able to dedicate the nvidia card (would be my secondary card, the ATI card, a 5850 being used for my primary) to folding? It's an 8800gtx.

tldr; Running a 5850 and 8800gtx, can I fold on 8800gtx if it's a physx card?

I wouldn't. The 8800GTX has too high of a power draw to be a good PhysX card. You can easily do better. Try to find something like a 9800GT ECO Edition or something that draws very little in the way of power.

There's nothing easier than using what you have on hand. I don't play any games that use hardware physx, but I am getting back into folding.

Interesting question. I don't want to highjack your thread but I too would like to know if I can use an HIS 5830 along with my 470s SLI? I have an extra PCI-e 2.0x16 slot and am wondering if I can use the 5830? Doing so would allow me to use another monitor. Three monitors for my 470s and one for the 5830?
PS: I have two 5830s new in their box doing nothing but collecting dust.

Yes. Just add a flag to the shortcut. Check the folding guides. Your 8800GTX will be GPU1 I think

I believe you can do it.

I was told it is doable with my 5870 + 8800GTS PhysX, but some settings are required. It doesn't require any fancy Hydra lucy whatever chips to do the trick, regular mutiple PCIe slots board will do.

Ask the guys in the folding section, they know the tricks.
