Do you have a sufficient PSU and do you have three PCI-E x16 slots? It is possible however you will have to use an older nVidia driver (not sure which one, never used a video card for dedicated PhysX.).

I have a 950 watts PSU which i believe is more than good enough...

So where would i find those old Nvidia drivers that might work with the 9500GT being a dedicated physx card?

If I was going to invest so much $$$ into the gpu setup you are considering, I get a very good PSU personally.

Rosewill are fair, it's 80+ certified too. I'm guessing it will have something around 800w on the 12v rail(s); enough to power almost any multi-GPU setup.

That is just it... It is Fair. I didnt say it would be enough, just for me personally ... I would upgrade it for the investment.

It is actually... I'm going to transfer my current setup minus the 6970s and plus the 5850s into a coolermaster advance II... The 6970s and the Corsair 1200 PSU would be moved into a HAFX for a totally new build, so no biggie really...

I love how every question posted on this site ends with a PSU discussion. It's like Corsair is paying people to troll the help forums. "My windows has a virus". "Probably because your PSU causes ripples". "You should get a Corsair."

The OP wanted to know how to run a Nvidia card with an AMD crossfire set-up, not which PSU he should get for his rig.

Yeah, an ancient thread... I know... I actually joined the forum -just to- put my $.02 in on this one. Been lurking Tom's since my Viper 770 Ultra was hotsauce...
@joshyboy82, I feel ya. You can't run that xx cpu with two of those xx with that xx mobo on THAT non-*orsair PSU!!! Curse your shoes for daring! Blasphemy! Etc...
People too often confuse "can't" with "shouldn't," IMHO. If I had a dollar for... ;->
