Gettin another card this week?

415 15
Ok im about to buy a GTX 260 and ill want to fold on it but i dont wanna give up my 8600 GT just yet! it gives almost 1500 ppd so keeping it running would be nice! do i just need a dummy plug for the 8600? if so what is this dummy plug u speak of lol?

Thanks

A) mixing different series of cards I don't think it works...
B) different number of SPs or Cores results in ppd cuts (huge 50% or more)
C) additional cards will take more memory mapping leaving you with less free RAM
D) You WILL need a Dummy Plug for it to work if it does...

and heres a link for how to make a dummy plug

yes regular use is fine, but I'm talking strictly [email protected]

I have in my sig rig an 8800GTX G80 core and an 8800GS G92 core... the 8800GS should output about 4kppd, it only puits out 2kppd because of the difference in SPs and Cores between the cards...
