Hello! I have a Radeon HD7870 Myst coming in to replace my 9800GTX+. I was wondering if there would be any functionality of having it alongside my ATI? I know they can't run SLI or Crossfire; but I wondered if there would be any benefit from the CUDA on the 9800 over the 7870 or if it would even be possible to have the 9800GTX+ run NVIDIA Physx since ATI cannot. My guess is there is no reason or advantage to having it in the case but thought I'd ask all the same. The mobo has PCI Express: x16 & x4.

Thanks!

For gaming, no, there's no use. You can't even use it as a PhysX card without some hackery (NVIDIA's drivers will disable it if it finds you have an AMD card)
