Hi so I have 2 x 465 gtx 1gb and had them for close to a month now, I replaced my old 250 gts with it, now im curious with my 2 x 465 in sli, would i notice any difference if i pop my 250 gts in my 3rd pcie slot for a Dedicated Physx?

No, there wont be any problem.It will be good for running PhysX games.

You might notice in a PhysX enabled title but that would be the only time.

I play ALOT of Bad Company 2, So Will it be a Noticeable Improvement at All? or will it just be normal, also I have a 750 watt GX Series Coolermaster PSU with a 60amp Rail, Lol Will it work with *3* Cards? I mean I know im pushing it already with 2 - 465 cards?

Bad Company 2 is not a PhysX game.There wont be any noticeable difference.

It can, but its gonna push that PSU to the limit.

Check this link for the games that might make use of a PhysX card, if your games are not on that list then don't bother.

seeing it would push it to the limits, it would just BSOD if anything right? i mean i dont wanna burn my pc out, just curious...

It depends on how much you push it.But it certainly would not explode, which is a very hare occurrence.

well even so, i mean isnt my 2 465's in sli overkill as it is? would there be any actual performance gain in bad company 2 with that 250 gts? im not tryin to bug u guys, im just curious cause i have the card on ebay but can pull it off if i can get a performance increase with it, thanks -Jim

That PSU should be OK with GTX 465s in SLI, you should know it better since you've already had the cards for a month.But you will not get any noticeable performance with an extra GTS 250 in BF BC2.

As Tamz_msc has already said BBC2 is not a PhysX title so there would be no gain whatsoever.
