need a new GFX card!! - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I'd sell the 450 honestly (like for example cheaply, to me for helping you pick a much better upgrade than you would have otherwise), but I suppose you could use it as a PhysX card if you have room in your case, mobo, and PSU. Do you play games that use PhysX often?

SLI 460 is faster and the same price as a 6950. Benefits of the 6950 would be power usage and VRAM, and that's about it.

not really its just a rig to watch you tube on and browse the web with ver occasional gaming but if i do feel the need to game ill whack everything up flat out, ie Crysis 2 plays happily at "advanced" level @1920x1200 on my rig

I would take a look at this list of titles that support GPU PhysX and decide if you'd rather have slightly better performance in those titles or the extra money in your pocket. It's also important to remember that SLI 460s will be a beast of a set-up, overclocked to the max they will even outrun a 580, so I would not consider a PhysX card a necessity "whack everything up and run it flat out" that's what I do. I had a lot of fun in installing the BF3 beta, turning it up to max and then not thinking about FPS or settings again and just enjoying because it was more than smooth enough.
