Default PhysX Debacle

Hello guys, I recently bought a GTX 560 Ti to begin my upgrade to my PC. I currently have a GTS 450 SLI set up too. My questions is that will it be more beneficial to use a set of GTS 450's in SLI plus the GTX 560 Ti as the physX processor or the GTX 560 Ti and a single GTS 450 as the PhysX processor? Is it possible to use the GTX 560 Ti as the main GPU and the SLI GTS 450's for PhysX by switching the cards around on the PCI-E slots? Which of these set ups are the best in terms of best overall FPS along with PhysX features? This will be a temp. set up until I could get a second GTX 560 Ti to SLI them and use a single GTS 450 for PhyX, I'd appreciate any help.

My Current Specs

Mobo: MSI X-58 Pro-E

GPU: Need help currently

Note: Overclocking is not a concern for me, I'm new to mixing cards as I have always used dual SLI set ups since the 7900 GTX days.
