This is a heavily debated topic. My recommendation to you would be to test each configuration with PhysX benchmarks to see what gives you the best performance. :^)

Metro 2033 is a great PhysX tester, as well as that Batman game and Mafia 2

Yes! If you have the extra power to spare and you dont have a better card then I would def whack that card into your pc. Use it as a physx card though, SLI wont work as they are different chips. No harm in trying, right?
