my motherboard ASRock 880G Extreme 3 has onboard 4250 Graphics,
currently i have a XFX 5770 card.
and am soon going to buy a gigabyte 6850 overclocked edition.
can i run both the 5770 and 6850. (NO, NOT crossfire'd)
i heard something about nvidia cards being able to do this, and u can set 1 card to be dedicated physx.
is there something similar for ATI cards?

A physx card is different than a set up like that. Physx is the GPU doing the physics calculations instead of the CPU. AMD doesn't have that feature. You can't CF them either. If I were you, I would grab another 5770. Two of those would blow a hd6850 out of the water. Just saying.

Well, my plan is to get 2 6850's but i cant afford 2 at this time, so might just get 1, wait for the next pay check, and in between those 2, sell my 5770 for an extra bit of cash

and thanks, its a pretty neat pic :p
