Just a thought, if I had an X58 would it be possible to have 2 Radeon's in crossfire plus an nvidia card that was used solely for PhysX?

More about : crossfire physx

I`ve the same dude...

I`ll buy a new I7 PC soon and I would like to know if it`s possible to have a 4870x2 + (Eg.) 9500GT or 4870 + 4870 + 9500GT

As AMG said, What I was told is that it is possible on Windows XP and 7, but no in Vista... Because Vista does not allow you to have 2 drivers from different brands at the same time

Really? XP suports 2 different drivers but not Vista? Odd...in any case, I've been on 7 since the beta came out and i don't plan on going back...but this is interesting to hear. Both of you seem to have solid evidence that it works. Have you seen an article on it? And could you post the link if there is?

In this thread http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-262410_15_0.html Seasky reckons it's possible and jedimasterben has also been experimenting http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/page-265393_15_0.html. I haven't tried it at all so I can't confirm or deny.

Remember not to put in a weak physX card with a set of powerful cards. My system went slower adding a 9600gso (dedicated physX) to my gtx260 sli.

That is only relavent to SLI + physx. Since crossfire can't do physX it doesnt come into play here. Though I wouldnt be able to deal with the bugs associated with running crossfier with PhysX... lol

Ah, yeah, I can see how that could happen. However, the card I'd be using is an 8800GT which I think would be fine, but I'm also talking about 2 cards in crossfire so they wouldn't be able to do physx since they would be ATI so really this is a case of physx or no physx.

just need to make sure you tell teh Nvida drivers to go on hardware, if you have all the drivers installed than it should be fine
