Different Nvidia cards in same machine

Discussion in 'Nvidia' started by Thomas Andersson, Feb 8, 2010.

  1. Hi!

    I currently have a 7800GTX w. TV-out and is looking to buy a 260GTX but have
    a hard time finding a Core 216 with TV-Out I like.
    My question to you is, could I possibly have both cards installed in my
    machine and use the old just for the TV-Out? I know I can't SLI them, but
    could the above scenario work?
    And while at it, if I could use both cards like that, could the old one do
    physics or is it to old??

    Best Wishes

    So long as they can both exist on the same driver version, you'll be
    fine. Physx is G80 or above only (8800 series+); otherwise it's only
    useful for driving many displays. Saw your other thread too, usually a
    single card setup is better overall.

  3. Yes and that's what I aim for, as you've guessed using the two cards is only
    an emergency solution in case I can't get hold of what I want. Right now it
    seems very hard to get those cards :/
