Thanks for the links do you think this is a good one too? Seems like it pushes a lot of power without costing too much.

Edit: would like something modular since this is the state of my case atm:

Oh, nice! NVIDIA recommends a 500W power supply to power a system that has one GTX 560 in it which means that any high quality 400-450W power supply can be recommended. This is because NVIDIA is including peak-rated units while any high quality 400-450W power supply will be continuous-rated (it'll have even more power than the typical 500W peak-rated unit).

I'm making a meal right now, so I'll be back in a little bit to post some recommendations. However, I can say with absolutely total confidence that any SeaSonic X-Series power supply would be your best bet with a budget of $200! You'll know you're looking at an X-Series when it's fully modular (no hardwired cables at all), plus it'll have a Gold efficiency rating along with some gold paint on the side. Oh, and it also says "X-Series" on the box (some X-Series units don't have "X" in the model number, specifically some of the "fanless" units).

It's possible that that setup could be slower than the 560 on its own, as the 560 would wait for the 260 to finish its physx calculations, effectively bottlenecking the 560.

You should really try both setups just to be safe.

While it's true that it's not a good idea to use too weak of a card for PhysX (that is, in comparison to the main card), I think the GTX 260 is quite possibly the perfect card to pair up with the GTX 560 for PhysX. I mean, I think the weakest card I would pair up with the GTX 560 might be the GTS 250 or 9800 GTX+ (essentially the same card).

Anyway, I'm still eating, so it'll be maybe 30-45 minutes before I can post any of my personal specific recommendations.

Considering the possibility of having the GTX 260 do the PhysX processing for the GTX 560, I'll recommend these power supplies (they're both major overkill, but that's half the fun):

I suppose I could recommend others, but these are pretty much the best of the best!
