    you don't "need" the 3rd card if you have SLI, however, either you will disable SLI and have one card for graphics and one for Phsyx, or both cards in SLI but both be doing graphics and phsyx (not actually sure if that's possible yet, usually that would be less performance then the last option, but i'm not sure in the case of SLI)

    Or, have 2 cards in SLI, for your graphics, and one card for Phsyx, this one is the one that theoretically would give you the best performance

    I'm not sure you are able to mix cards with SLI at this point. I tried to put my 8600 GT in my third PCIE slot last week and lost SLI and Physix. I read that adding a third card (non SLI) that is different from your first two and keeping SLI is something to be implemented in the near future, and put my plans on hold.

    Yeah the 3rd card for SLI isn't fully supported yet however they did say it is in development
