    Angry EX58-UD3R + 2 GFXcards [non-SLI]

    hmm .. apart from the really tight clearance for hds at the end of my GT260
    i can only put the 'new' 9800 in the upper slot because of its passive heatsiink
    im using analog adapter on the 9800, digital on the GT260
    but everything sees the 9800 as default primary card
    changing the order in BIOS causes major non-booting problems

    my PLAN was to use a secondary card for PhysX and CUDA

    If changing the order in bios is no-go, why not just change it in Windows where it matters? Simply set the GTX260 to Primary desktop in Display Properties and viola. It doesn't matter which monitor the bios POST screen is on does it, just which card gets priority for rendering games in Windows, right?
