And that's the truth. If you want the best, go for nvidia. If you want to buy something cheaper get an amd."

I hear someones mom calling them. Time for your bath!

I THINK I wanted to purchase the BEST brand that I could so I went with better performance and atleast the slightest bit of GETTING GOOD DRIVERS. I BELIEVE I thought about what I wanted and I worked for all of it.

Thats all I need to think about.

It is a choice for what you want PhysX to be set as the processor.

1. Go install the games on that list.

2. Go to your nVidia drivers.

3. Turn on the PhysX overlay.

4. Enable GPU PhysX.

5. Still witness that the game is using CPU PhysX.

Shattered Horizon I know for a fact is still using PhysX on the CPU. It's how the game and driver is coded. You cannot force GPU PhysX unless the game has implemented actual GPU PhysX.

Here lately I regret even clicking on 9 out of 10 threads on OCN. It always turns into namecalling, trolling, insults and put downs. I thought it was getting bad with all the bf3 beta stuff but now its thread after thread. Its almost starting to feel a little like reddit.com
