Basically i am using a HD 6870 which is pretty good, but i wondered if using 2 Nvidia Gefore 9800GT would be better? i was wondering because i wanted to take advantage of PhysX since i am doing modelling.

Would an "Antec 620W High Voltage" work with 2 9800 GT, if they are better than my HD 6870, i'm a casual gamer using 1024x1280 Res for World Of Warcraft with about 40-80FPS with my HD 6870, would i see an increase too?

Reason i chose 9800 GT is because i have 2 Spare (just curious because i'll have to save up money for a nvidia card to be able to use PhysX)

Many Thanks

The 9800GT SLI would be slower than the 6870. You would also not have DirectX 11 support with the 9800GT's like you do with the 6870.

You can use the 9800GT as a PhysX card, but you would have to use the hybrid PhysX drivers that can be found online.

Also, how does a 9800GT help for modeling if I may?

Thanks for the quick answers, and as to your question Deemo as i said i want a Nvidia card so i can take advantage of PhysX. i'll just have to save up for a better graphics card, from what it says on the graphics card performance the GTX 650 Ti is close by. :)

There are very few games that have support fr it. What games do you plat that have it? (Batman, Borderlands 2, Mafia II, etc.)

There is a full list on wikipedia. You could also run the Physx using the hybrd drivers if you like, just do a Google search for it.
