I've had my 9800GTX+ for about six months now but it has been kind of lacking on newer games so I have ordered a MSI GTX460 1GB. I was wondering if I would still be able to use the old 9800GTX alongside my new card. I know you can't SLI it, but I heard somewhere you can dedicate it to Physx possible?
If not, I will probably still keep it in case I grab a 3rd or 4th monitor. Right now I have two 1680 x 1050's. I don't plan on selling it because I don't believe graphics cards have a good resale value. Please correct me if I am wrong. Craigslist?
Yeah, unfortunately since PhysX is an nVidia proprietary system (i.e. ATI can't legally use it) a lot of game developers won't use it. Specifically because only about 1/2 (I'm sure it's not an exact number) of their customers can even take advantage of it. You not only need an nVidia card, but it has to be two cards, or one very high end card to play PhysX titles with all the settings turned on.
PhysX is pretty cool stuff, but not many titles truly support it. At least usually not "big hit" titles.
