I consider myself to be a casual gamer, and i recently put together my current rig:
Processor: Intel Q9450 2.66
Mobo: ASUS P5N-D 750i
Graphics: EVGA GTS 250 1GB
CPU Cooler: Corsair H50
Memory:2x A-Data 1GB, 2x G Skill 1GB (both ddr2)
psu: Corsair 950 watt non-modular
HDD: WD Blue 500gb 8MB Cache 5400rpm System drive (i know, i know.......)
WD Caviar Green 1TB 64MB Cache 7200rpm Storage Drive
I consider this to be a pretty decent computer, system drive excluded, but I wanted to go SLI when I built it, just lacked the funds. Now, however, the prices on cards has gone down, and I can afford another 250. When test fitting my current card in the second slot, thinking I may need to move my HDD to accommodate the card, I found an even more troublesome problem: The GTS 250 hits the SATA connectors
What I am wondering is, is there any way to have an adapter that allows me to mover where I connect my HDD's, similar idea to a surge protector? If not, would I benefit as much in buying a GTX 460 and running my current 250 as a dedicated PhysX card as I would running 2 250's in SLI? Should I just quit while I'm ahead?
Thanks in advance for the advice guys!
