Need Help with Physx card

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi guys...im looking to get a card for Physx and wanted some recommendations. I currently have a GTX590 in the PC now, and wanted to know if I install a dedicated card for physx would it help?not help? Am I wasting my money?
I run a surround setup with 3 ASUS 24inch monitors.

Thanks

What games are you playing?

I'd recommend nothing more than a GTS450.

Honestly if you have a GTX 590, I don't see much of a point. But, if you still want to try it, try out a GTX 260.

How much would you be willing to spend?

with a 590, i see no real reason to get a PhysX card. If you still want to get one, i wouldn't get under a GTS 450/GTS 260.

Only a handfull of games support it and physx is kinda of a gimmick in my opinion but if you really want a dedicated card I suggest the 9800gt

So if I install another card for Physx, do I just plug it in and set the Nvidia controll to use it for physix? Do I need to plug my monitors into it?

Thanks for the help. I only asked due to when setting up my suround monitors it asked witch card would I like to use for physx. Right now it is set up as (GTX590 A ) by defualt, so I just thought if I put in another card just for physx it would take the work off one of the cores in the GTX 590
