The 260 or 275 would be the better option, then put the 8800 to use as a PhysX card.

thanks mousemonkey , how do you use a 8800 as a physx card , and what would be gained by it ?. is the 260 any faster than the 8800 ?.
searching the net and cant find any head to head for 8800 or 200 series cards..

A single 260 is almost twice as powerful as it has almost twice as many SP's or 'Cuda Cores' than an 8800 and to use the 8800 as a PhysX card you only need to put it in the secondary slot and enable it as a dedicated PhysX card via the Nv control panel, no SLi bridge should be fitted.
