Question GTX 660TI & GTX 980 working together?

Hey all. I currently have an Asus Geforce GTX 660TI and an Asus Geforce GTX 980 in my pc. Now a question I have is: is it possible for the two GPU's to work together somehow? I know that it's not possible through SLI, but is there a little magic trick I can do?

Thanks in advance

No. Only thing you can do is use the extra GPU for extra monitor outputs or use the 660ti for PhysX.

Ohh okay. So if I want to use my 660TI for PhysX, how can I do that?

I think you have literally both codes plugged into different slots (ensure you have enough power), and make sure your video cable is plugged into the card you want to use for the screen. In the Nvidia control panel PhysX section you should be able to specify each card manually depending on which card you want to use for it.

But honestly, a GTX980 isn't really going to have much of a problem dealing with PhysX by itself.

I think the 660ti will make PhysX performance worse. You just need to have it selected in the NVCP.
