    hi guys, I am building up a PC for a mate of mine and have an SLI board, now I have a spare 8800gt (proper Mac card) lying around doing nothing. (main card is a 570GTX) can I use that in the PC for PhysX and running an extra monitor off?

    or would I have to flash that puppy to PC card before I can use it?

    cheers

    Can confirm it is fine. Just threw my old Geforce 7300 GT from a 1,1 in an old HP tower, no problems.
