Well...I don't really remember if Quaddro supports PhysX-dedication mode, but...just make it a PhysX-dedicated card (at least try it?), while using another video card for other tasks, this way you could use both of them at the same time, without worrying about SLI, because you don't need to have your cards in SLI to run PhysX.

One card would work for PhysX (Quaddro), while second one would do everything else. That way you can play video games, while using your Quaddro too, and without any SLI.
Try it, I think it should work just fine.

P.S. Could someone confirm if Quaddro supports PhysX and could be used as PhysX-dedicated GPU? Personally, I never tried to do it on those, even though I owned them before.

Try the easy way first and replace the quadro with the new one. Most software will work with a gts also and I don't expect the entry-level quadro 600 to be faster in any area.

Quadro 600 will be faster for professional apps.

As for OP: it will work. Just buy a new card, insert it to your PC, and boot up/install drivers for it.

And when you want to use that card, power computer down, insert monitor cable to that card and turn the PC on back. That's it.

He doesn't need to dedicate anything to physx. And Quadro 600 doesn't support physx.

You don't need any additional "software" for that, really. Only GPUs themselves and, obviously, latest drivers installed.

Go to your Nvidia control panel, it should look something like this:



See the "Set PhysX configuration" option? Click that, and see what options are there. If there are no Quaddro in the list of modes (only CPU), then your Quaddro doesn't support PhysX.

No you don't. Just switch the cable.

It's possible to do without switching cable only if your monitor has more than 1 input. Since you didn't say its model, I cannot tell you if you can do that.

Too bad, man. :( 
There's really not much else that I can recommend you with in this case. Quaddro is very specific video card, and I'm actually not surprised that it doesn't support it.
Maybe top models have support of AGEIA, but I highly doubt it now...though, I never had the very top model of Quaddro on my hands, so I wouldn't know...I just assume.

Well..at least I tried to help. :sol:

Since you want it to work together with Quadro, you'll have to buy an Nvidia card. For price point of $200, I recommend waiting 1.5 week for the 650 to be released. It will be in your price range and will be faster than anything you can get today for that price.

It should also have DisplayPort output, so you will be able to keep your quadro connected via DVI, connect the new gaming card through DisplayPort, and when you want to switch between them, you'll just have to press "Source" button on your monitor.
