Ah. How do the NVidia ones fair? Quite expensive though

I set it to the second card since from my testing card 1 does more work than card 2. Plus my card 1 runs hotter than card 2 at a good margin when it's doing physx. Kinda helps balance the temps between the two.

I also force PhysX onto card 2. And of course, you don't want to check the 'dedicated' box, because that will take your cards out of SLI.

I've ran it on all settings and I don't notice a difference. As long as you have decent performing cards then I personally think that it doesn't matter. I'm sure someone will chime in with super science calculations on why it's best to leave it on what ever card. I can live with 1 less fps or a hiccup here or there.
