Can I run a 8800GT as Physic's card with a pair on 9800GTX+'s?

Since the 9800GTX+ is so cheap now after rebate I just bought a pair to run SLI and was just wondering if it would be worth it to run my 8800GT as a dedicated Physic's card with it if it's possible.

So long as you have the slots and PSU then there shouldn't be any problems doing what you want to do.

Cool thanks. I'm running a EVGA 780i and Corsair TX850 power supply so I think I should be ok just wanted to know if it was possible. Hope it has a decent performance gain. If not I'll just sell my 8800GT to a friend.

The only time you might see any gains is in a game that actually uses GPU PhysX, if you don't play any of those games then it won't do squat for overall performance.

Just found the complete list that utilizes it and Unreal Tournament 3 and Cryostasis are only games I play on there so won't bother putting it in. Thanks again for info though.
