Question:
What is the recommended or optimum connection to use for a 2-Way SLI + Dedicated PhysX Card with dual or multi-monitor setup? Do I connect the second monitor to the primary GPU, as in a 3-Way SLI, or do I route the secondary, 3rd or 4th monitor to the PhysX card?

Are you trying to do "Surround Vision" or just have several monitors?

Good question, currently I am running 2-Way SLI, with dual monitors, and setup varies depending on if I am working productivity software or gaming. If gaming, then the game title determines if I'll enable Surround 2D or just game on a single monitor. Having just recently purchased a third card for PhysX, my question becomes do I need change the connection, by connecting the second monitor to the PhysX card?

No, the Physx card is not used to output a video signal and 2D Surround Vision only supports three monitors (two in the primary card and the third in the secondary) at this time.

nAdditionally, I found the answer as well, partially through looking a the FAQ for 3D Surround on Nvidia. Which shows a third GPU, for additional displays, though I am not sure if it can still be ran as a dedicated PhysX card in the control panel. However, this means, if 3 monitors are used for 2D/3D Surround, then two or more additional monitors can be added with a 3rd card.
