HD 5970 with dedicated GTX280 (nvidia)?

I was wondering about this when I built my new PC this year.

On my previous computer I had an Nvidia GTX 280 as my graphics card. But with the new Radeon HD 5970 that i just bought (love it), is it possible for me to add in my older GTX280 but dedicated to physx? and if so, how?

this might be sort of a general question, let me know if there is any info I could provide about my PC that would help.

Saw something like it here:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_wLrFqR-4qY


Thanks in Advance,
iSpawn

  1. Actually it should be possible under XP as well and without the need for hacked third party software.

  2. But it is not possible while running Vista correct?

    Correct.

    Would it be illogical to purchase a 480 and use it on the same machine as a 5970? Would the performance increase be worth it? (I wouldn't do this in the near future, probably around Christmas- high-end gaming only)


    who said anything about a 480?

    Don't hijack this thread with your questions, start your own.
