So I have a gtx 260 and a 570. I've been using 570 so far and I've never thought about using the 260 as a phsyx card (or something like that)

Would both of them be compatible for my corsair 750w or would I need a higher one?

Corsair has a variety of 750W PSU and in all likelihood they would have sufficient power to run both Vid cards but I don't know that you can use the 260 as a physics card. You might want to ask Nvidia about that.

The link below is useful for determining the required PSU wattage for a PC but you'd need to fudge a little with two different Vid cards and use the high wattage one in SLI form for calulations.
