Gt 240 as physx card

I want to buy new graphics card GTS 450, I already have a GT 240 card with no SLI.
My doubt is can I use dedicated physx processing from GT 240 and graphics processing from GTS 450.
If I can use that feature recommend me the supported mothers boards, currently I have a single PCI-e slot.

  1. Any motherboard that supports your CPU and has two or more PCIe slots will do.

    Just like mousemonkey said above, all you need is a mobo with 2 or more PCIE slots...
  3. Agreed +3
  4. Thank you for your replies. Please recommend me the motherboard for E7400 cpu.
    Is 650iSLI mobo is suitable or enough since it has dual x8 pci-e slots inspite of pci-e x16. Thanking you.
  5. Are going to build a new computer? If so, why not get a newer processor, like a AMD Athlon/Phenom II or Core i3/i5?

    You don't need an SLi board if you just want to run a PhysX card.
  7. A 650i is a poor choice and back then many weren't that good so the same still applies today. If you are into Nvidia enough to consider such a board then a 780i/790i is the sweet spot as they are covered still under warranty but EVGA requires proof of purchase for any support. XFX however you buy a dead one off eBay and RMA that for a working copy as I have done but beyond that stay with Intel chipset and nothing else. The 750i isn't much better but all the same as a 650i with a N200 pci-e 2.0 switch.

    Any model that has two or more PCIe slots will work for you if you just want to run two different Nvidia cards, it does not need to be SLi certified it just needs to support your CPU and have two slots.
  10. I've been searching over the internet but I can not get the model of the motherboard with more PCIe slots.
    Can someone post me the link to know the info about the motherboard.
