Hybrid sli...noob question

So Im still trying to understand the ins and outs of graphics. So short and sweet noob question:
Geforce gtx 560 with Gtx 275 dedicated to physix. Is this possible on msi nf980-g65 mobo?
I currently have 2- 275s in sli on this motherboard and was thinking of upgrading to a 1090t and 12gigs ram. Thanks to overtime :love: I was thinking of upgrading one to the 560 for cost/performance and to get dx11. I would like an "sli" setup for really no other reason then to say I have it (vain I guess). Or should I scrap the idea and just keep what I have for now and possibly build new in a couple years?
currently:
MSI NF-980 mobo
Phenom II x4 925
Thermaltake bigwater 780e liquid cooling sys.
evga gtx 275 in sli
4gigs patriot ddr3 1600 7-7-7-20
Coolermaster 1000w esa psu
killer bigfoot nic
silverstone esa commander

  1. If you want to do an SLI setup, the cards have to be the same. If you are wanting to SLI the 560, you need another 560. However to do a Physics setup, you need to uninstall the SLI drivers, and get the appropriate drivers from nVidia's site.

    The drivers are the same for SLi and none SLi, PhysX is a separate download and install now though it seems as I haven't noticed it as part of the driver install in the last couple.
