Troubles dedicated with physx card

I'm using an MSI NF980 G65, 4GB 1600 corsair, Phenom II 720, 9800GT, and a GTX460. Nothign is overcloked

Can't get the 9800 to actually do anything, set it in the second PCI-e slot right under to the 460, booted up and set the 9800 to do physx and nothing happened, no performance increase not even 0.1 FPS or stability increase not in Farcry 2, Crysis, or Borderlands.

zDoes the physx card need to be ontop or at the bottom in the x8 slot, or does the board hybrid sli need to be enabled in the bios, I don't wanna wear out the damn baord or break it trying all this stuff.

I do however have about a min of my monitor going to sleep between the vista loading screen and the log in page

  1. Physx only works on some games. The games it does work on will lower your fps when you turn it on, it will not boost your performance. When you dedicate a GPU to Physx it will ONLY do physx absolutly NOTHING else.

    Hope I helped.

    P.S. If that was not your question please clearify.

    None of the games you mentioned support GPU accelerated PhysX. There are only about 17-20 games that do. If you play those games, the dedicated physX card will allow you to turn on the PhysX effects without losing a ton of performance.

    If you don't have a game that supports GPU accelerated PhysX, then you only drain extra power to have one in your system.
