I'm using an Asus P6T Deluxe V2 board. My initial plan was, to use 2 GTX285 cards in SLI. I then got to reading about dedicated PhysX cards etc., and seeing as I have a 9800GTX+ lying around, I figured that it would be really cool doing the 2 GTX285 AND the 9800GTX+ as PhysX card.
However, this proved to be impossible with the layout of my Asus motherboard, and so I started looking around for either a PCI-E x4 card to use for PhysX, or a PCI card, as I came across a thread.
A guy says, that the probably best thing to do is just using any proper PhysX card with a good graphics card, and save some money instead of using SLI.
So, I'll ask you guys:
I assume that the 285SLI setup will be better than the 295+PPU, but how much? There's a considerable amount of money to be saved.
Also, will using the 9800GTX+ as a PPU limit the 295 in any way? I saw someone saying that it would bring down the better card to the lesser card's clock speeds.
Here in Denmark, we have 14 days of full refund, if the buyer decides they don't want the product anyway.
I was thinking if it would pay off changing my Asus P6T Deluxe v2 for a ASrock x58 SuperComputer which does actually have a PCI-E x16 port placement that allows 3 cards that take up 2 slots..I'm just not sure it's worth the hazzle, getting third slot for a PPU.
