Default P45 + 2x 9600GT

will a p45 be able to run 2 9600gt's? one for display and the other for physx?
edit: i know it will not support sli but will it support the multi-gpu option in the nvidia control panel?

thats right, it will work. but why waste money on phyX?

you could get 9800GTX for the price of 2 9600GT and it will perform a lot better even without the physx card

unless your gonna fold on them

Default old cards

its just that i have 2 9600gt's lying around because my 750i board got fried. i was thinking of just getting a p45 since intels are known to be much more stable and better overclockers than their nvidia counterparts. Another question in my mind is: are 2 9600gt's in sli considerably faster compared to a 9600gt for display and another one for physx? my monitor resolution is 1920x1080 and the 9600gt's both have 512mb of memory.

Yes you'd be much better going sli.

Hardly any games use physx from what I understand.
