Dedicated PhysX Card?

Here is my thinking:

I want to wait to see the Nvidia 800 series prices and performance before I commit a major amount of money.

I currently own Asus GTX 770 2 Way SLI and I just purchased an Asus 750ti to use as a dedicated PhysX Card. ( I have not received it yet)

Does anyone see a problem with this configuration?

I am doing video editing, rendering and gaming, my native display is

2560X1200, with two 1080p monitors.
I will definitely purchase 3 4k monitors either at the end of the year or begining of next year, thats when I feel with all the information available I will be able to make smarter choices and be able to better future proof my system.

I have been fawning over the Asus Matrix 780ti's they are currently coming online with Amazon, with a 3 week ship date, but I have not hit the buy button.

I'm thinking what I have is a great inexpensive graphic solution, and I should wait before I make a major investment in terms of GPU's and displays?

Please comment, I would love a consensus of the community.

You should of just save your money, a dedicated PhysX card is more of a joke than a performance increase. Some games it might help, but the dedicated PhysX card CAN SLOW DOWN games then without it too.

Two titan Blacks would be perfect for what your doing.

Interesting video, and thanks for sharing this information with me. However the video did not test different resolutions, different applications, and the effect of SLI.

My thoughts were 3 way SLI looks like a waste of money with diminishing returns after 2 way, (I can be wrong) and an affordable way to increase my graphics power would be to add the 750ti for less than $150.00 bucks, as the low power consumption and the new GPU architecture with a $20.00 mail in rebate with a free game.

I figure I will wait for a final solution after evaluating whats on the market in Q4. I might end up following TechyinAZ recommendation.

Wrong?

Your correct for 3 way sli. Here's how it goes, 2 way sli usually brings nearly double the performance, 3 way only brings about 75-50%, then 4 way only brings about 25% extra performance (doesn't apply to quad sli).
