Dear all,I have an evga 9800gx2 and an asus gts250 DK bearing in mind that both cards are based on the 9800gt I wondered if some kind of tri sli would be possible? If so what drivers would i need etc,etc.
thanks

If you already have them both, why don't you try it. Nothing will explode :p 
The 250GTX is based on the 9800GTX+ which is based on the 8800GTS, not the 8800GT which is the base for the 9800GT.

You can possibly do that
But won't get the most out of them unless you have a quad-core CPU with +4GHz clock speed

I'm pretty sure that will not work, but hey you may as well try it :D . The 9800GX2 is based on the G92 while the GTS250 is based on the G92b. Even though it should be technically possible (you can SLI a 9800GTX and a 9800GTX+ card after all), I don't know if the drivers will allow you to do it.

If not, then you could just use the GTS250 as a PhysX card :) .
