9800gx2 or 9800gt?

Recommended Posts

For PhysX. Just thought I would be provocative with the old school cards in the title. I have been running the system in my sig for a year now and I don't need another card to help out the 295 but realized yesterday I have the above two cards laying around from older systems and thought it might be fun to use one for physx and let the 295 do everything else.

 

If it were you which of the two cards would you use? The 9800gx2 is the more powerful of the two cards but then I would have 4 gpus going. Is that an issue if they are not in SLI? I have plenty of power overhead either way. I'm thinking the 9800gt might be better/more simple solution? Just wondering your thoughts/opinions.

as long as you have at least Vista, strong enough PSU w/ appropriate connectors, I don't see why there would be a problem. :)

agreed, 9800gt it is. It has a lot of sentimental value too. It was a great card in its time.

IIRC you can only run PhysX on one of the GPUs on the 9800GX2 though I can't remember where I saw that.
