Can my motherboard support a Hybrid PhysX setup?

I want to know if i can use another card for physx without slowing my main card down. Like right now i think it runs at 16x. Would adding an other card make both cards run at 8x speeds?

My specs:
fx4100 @ 4.4ghz
7850 2gb
asrock 970 extreme3
128gb ocz vector
1tb hard drive
650w psu

My physX card would be a gtx 260

    unfortunately, nvidia drivers no longer allow physx support in sync with an amd card. And to answer your question- no it would only share the bandwidth 8x-8x when in crossfire mode.

    there are some if you want to look it up, but they are not free of bugs
  4. I might look into. You think my 650w psu would be powerful enough? My 7850 is overclocked aswell so im not sure how much wattage I can spare.

    650w is enough to run 3xhd7850 so yeah it should be enough regardless of what nvidia card you plan on using
