Hi guys, im upgrading my graphics card and i have a 9600gt which i want to run as a dedicated physx card with my new EVGA GTS 450 1GB. How can i do this and what is the procedure? Also, will the psu handle both the cards?

My specs:
core i3 530
corsair XM3 DDR3 4GB
EVGA P55V SLI MOBO
ULTRA LS600 (600watt) PSU 12v rail is 32A (i think)

Your PSU should be good enough and the setting up is easy and done via the Nvidia control panel.

Just plug both cards into available PCIe slots on your motherboard. Uninstall your old Nvidia drivers. Restart. Install your new Nvidia drivers. Restart. Then go to the Nvidia Control Panel to enable and configure your dedicated PhysX card.

thanks guys, another question is the case i have has 2-3 (depending if i can have them all running), 80mm fans that take 4-pin molex's or 3-pin video card. Will i have enough molex's or whatever connectors to have all the fans running and the GPU's because the main GPU takes up the only 6-pin connector and the other takes up 2 molexs (or does it?) or, can i connect it with others because there is only 4 molex's. :(

Either split the molex's from a HDD and the CD/DVD drive or get a better PSU.

Could you please explain to me by splitting the molex's from the hdd and cd'dvd drive. I will only have one cd/dvd drive and one HDD, leaving me one cable left i think. So how (what adapter or w/e) can i use to split it?

You're going to need a couple of molex y splitters.
