Ok, as most ppl know tax season be soon, and even tho i just built this rig on xmas i wanna drop a bit more into it with my taxes next week. Apart from a water system i have been reading people doing GTX's with a card dedicated to Physics. So i run (2) sli GTX 580 3gb, and i was thinking of adding a 560ti to the mix as a dedicated physics card, and eventually goin to 3gtx 580 and the 560ti. Not because i need all this but because i want to. Just wondering what people think about dedicating a lowr card to physics, and what card would be best.
Also would i need to upgrade my PSU, im currently using a XFX Pro 1250W (gold certified).
Oh yeah one thing i was wondering is if I do this, will it need to be connected via SLI 3 way bridge, and will the fact i use MSi Afterburner to OC my gtx 580's, have an adverse effect on a physics card?
awesome, i was a little confused about that. The GTX 560ti 448 to the GTX450 for physics not a big dif? Or is physics not really hard for the cards and be the same. Ive read alot its pointless as Physics doesnt take alot resources, its more of just i wanna do this ya know. So if the GTX 450 will do the same as a 560ti or close to it (physics only) ill go with that.
With the two or three 580's the gtx 450 will hardly see any action. A 450 would really be physix overkill, but may benefit some on certain games, but I don't think the 450 is going to do anything that the 580's are not already doing first, faster, better, ect
if i cud meld a jet engine to my bike i would..just to say i did it..I did some lookin around and i guess some lower end cards, or out of series cards will bottle neck the 580's...so..out of boredum i just decided ima order a 3rd gtx 580 hydro copper 2 and run it 3 way..and for physics games ill throw the third into dedicated mode. Dont have the link with me but some1 did that had a 20 frame increase or so (in a physics game).
