Hi all, I recently upgraded to a GTX690 from GTX460 SLI and I am wondering what could I possibly do with my old cards to boost performance in my machine. I run 2 monitors so was thinking of running the GTX690 for my main monitor and the running GTX460 sli for the second. Any ideas or help?

GTX 690 is powerful enough for gaming.
Sell the old cards or use it in a different computer.
You can run 2 monitors with a GTX 690.

Sell one GTX460 and use the other for PHYSX and the second monitor.

That's What i was thinking of doing. I figured that pushing the second monitor load to the other graphics card would help. I have you done this?

Yes, I have done this, but truth to tell, it made no difference that I could detect.
Attaching a second side monitor to your gaming card apparently has no real impact.
