Questions about dedicated physx

Hey guys, I've made up my mind on getting a 750ti for a dedicated physx card and I have a few questions before I purchase it tonight. Yes, I play pretty much all the current physx games so this is (to me) worth it, especially if it allows me to play Metro:Last Light with physx without dropping 15-20 FPS in certain parts. (even while standing still!) it'll boost a lot of games I enjoy.

Now that that's out of the way, I plan on purchasing an EVGA GTX 750ti for 150$ on amazon. Current system in signature. Will mixing two brands be alright, driver-wise? Will I be able to set OC profiles for each card individually with MSI afterburner? Is the EVGA card acceptable?(http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-02gp43751kr) I'm choosing that one because it's the cheapest and is amazon prime eligible so I can have it Monday if I order tonight.

    Yep, no problems with mixing and matching brand names. Afterburner only sees the GPU, not the tag on the cooler. I don't think you will be able to set individual OC profiles, since the GTX 750 Ti technically won't be performing any graphics work and won't be loaded with your graphics drivers. You will be using it for its processing/CUDA powers only, which will be regulated by the PhysX drivers, rather than the graphics drivers.
