Default Re: PhysX When SLI on Single

I'm guessing this won't work on my GTX 295, though, since the 2nd GPU would have to be on a separate slot to be dedicated to PhysX.
Not neccasarily. It depends on game, Resolution, and rendering bottlenecks. Dedicated PhysX cards are mostly useful in my experience ((compared to standard SLI renderings)) at lower resolutions where PhysX processing is the primary bottleneck. But range can vary widely depending on settings and such.
