Heya, heres a new question. Since using a mATX board and SLI is hard to do.. and if you do it, it usually leaves room for nothing else expansion wise... I read in several mod logs that some people like to use a lesser (GF9xxx series) graphics cards solely for the use of boosting PhysX performance...Taking the load off of the main/primary GPU. Can anyone tell me, or point me in the right direction as far as finding out how much of a gain this is, and if it is worth the money of a secondary GPU? I still think PhysX should sell their own solo card like they used to.. but hey. My board is Intel's latest mATX board for the core i5 CPU and has a second 8x PCI Express slot... Not to versed on the rules and what not of SLI setups.. but I think when you have a 16x and an 8x thats hybrid SLI right? I would also assume two 16x's would perform better? Anyway, I plan on using a single GPU, likely the 295 from XFX...mainly cause I like its color and so far have not built up an opinion of whos better then who. Anyway..Should I bother with getting a second lesser card for PhysX purposes.. and if so which card should I get?
PS...Shouldnt M-I take down the banner at the top of the page inviting people to enter the ION contest.. since.. you know.. you cant enter anymore? lol
