Same system EVGA 670 FTW and EVGA 570 SC HD

I recently popped an EVGA 670 FTW into my rig (damn good card) - question - is there any way I can use my spare 570HD SC in any capacity, in the same system (SLI obviously not an option)? Should be fine with the PS (850w Corsair). I feel sorry for the 570 - sitting on a table, staring at me like a lost puppy. Feedback appreciated peeps...

You can use the GTX 570 as a dedicated PhysX card. Just go into the Nvidia control panel and select the GTX 570 to be the PhysX processor. I did that with my old GTX 560 Ti.

If you play any games that use both monitors, I think you can hook one monitor up to each. Not completely sure though.

Sell it before the 660ti comes out.

Tried that brotherman - no takers - the 570 HD SC is still a damn good card - prolly build a second machine - the card can certainly hold its own, unless you absolutely must dominate some of these system hogging games. Someone is going to get a damn good present. Appreciate all the replies...
