    Is it possible to use GeForce 8400GS as a phyx card in combination with
    GF 9800GTX+ on MSI P6N SLI mobo with Vista x64 SP1
    And if it is possible what need to be done to make it work.
    Thanks in advance.

    As long as the 8400GS has 256MB onboard memory, yes it is possible.

    You just have to tell nVidia's drivers to use the 8400GS as a dedicated physx card.

    The mobo has 650i nforce chipset and the board has card that it has two positions for SLI and for non-SLI what position should be because it is not SLI but I`m going to insert two GPUs.
    And from where in drivers do I set witch CARD for what to be used ?

    the driver will auto use the one the main display is on so if your main display is on the 9800GTZ your set
