Hi there Ive recently brought and installed a GTX770 and am running my GTX295 as my physx card which works but is using only half the card, so is there a way to make it use both sides? as in both gpu's on the 295

Nope.

The Physx hardware is pretty much standard on all cards. You just can't use the 295's GPU to add to it, doesn't work that way.

If the 295 is a dual gpu card on a single board then only one of the gpu's on the 295 can be used. You can add an additional card for separate PhysX support. DABhand is plain wrong in his response. But only 1 gpu can be relegated to that duty from that card.

Frankly you can't really utilize your 295 to it's fullest potential as a secondary card. You could reverse their roles but I would suggest against it.

I would suggest selling the 295 for extra cash. You do not truly need it with the 770 unless you run PhysX games at both 2560 and High PhysX setting. If you run at 1080P the card is more than powerful enough for both duties.

Koreanbear doesn't understand what the question was.

So I will reiterate in plain English so he can.

The question was although his 295 was being used as a dedicated Physx card, was there the possibility to add the GPU functions towards the Physx processing.

The Answer is no, as the GPU and Physx processor are two different pieces of hardware and have different mnemonics involved.

Whatever it was, the answer to both was given. This topic has served it's purpose.
