    New build

    Hi everybody

    just had a new system built

    CORSAIR OBSIDIAN 800D FULL TOWER CASE

    OCZ 1000W PSU - ZX SERIES

    ASUS RAMPAGE IV EXTREME

    INTEL CORE I7-3960X

    CORSAIR HYDRO SERIES H100i EXTREME PERFORMANCE LIQUID CPU COOLER

    Corsair Dominator Platinum, 2400MHz 4x4gb

    EVGA GeForce GTX 670 Superclocked NVIDIA Graphics Card - 4GB, x2

    Corsair Force Series GT F120 (120GB) SATA 3 (2.5 inch) Solid State Drive

    LITEON DVD RE-WRITER

    PIONEER BLU-RAY WRITER

    ASUS XONAR D2X SOUNDCARD

    MICROSOFT WINDOWS 7

    and I was wondering if I had the gpu's configed to SLI would I be able to fit a GEFORCE GTX660 and use that just for the PhysX and also would I have to buy a bigger psu ?

    Thank you all for you help

    You wouldn't be able to have a 660 running physx...(with 2 different cards in sli) and a 1000w is overkill for 2 670's 850w would be enough even for 3 670's

    Why would you want to have a third card in there to do the Physx? the cards you have in there are more than capable of running the Physx on there own.

    Re: New build

    I was just wondering because I have 2 asus 660 spare from my old comp and just thought I might be able to put 1 of them to use but guessed wrong, so my best be is to sell them both and buy another 670

    Re: New build

    for sli to work they need to be on the same chipset so mixing up 2 diffrent cards will just not work so its always best to run the same model of gfx cards it dont matter about the make (or company) aslong as they on the same chipset they will work well with each other

    thats a nice system btw i wouldent change a thing and users saying the psu is overkill, yes thats true but you also have the headroom for future upgrades if u need to

    Re: New build

    Well if you have the kit I would try it.

    Wouldn't have thought it would be necessary though, if it works would you be able to tell?
