Why don't you try your GTX 260 and see how it works as a PhysiX card first and then go from there.
that's just my two cents....

I'd go for the second 460 as you said it sounds like its having problem keeping up on its own for some of your games on max settings

If you are feeling lagging on games I think you should get another GTX460 to sli, since 460 dropped in price for quite a bit
