Welcome to OCN, first off
Secondly, please fill your system specs in the UserCP>Add System so your system shows up in each of your posts. Makes it a lot easier for people to give you good advice
Also, please use the EDIT button to edit your post if yours is the last one in the thread and it's less than 24 hours old, rather than 'triple-posting' like you did. Thanks!
Also, the 'multi-quote' button on each post makes replying to a bunch of folks much easier. Just click that button to toggle it on each post, then on the last one you're replying to, also click 'Quote' and you'll get a reply window with all the posts you clicked 'multi-quote' for.
Here's how the benchmark runs for me, this is comparing a couple 470's in SLI to 470's + 8800GT for physX. This is using like the very first, original version of the game, I've never patched it. All the in-game settings are maxed out (and NVCP settings are at defaults), and the resolution is 1920x1200.
The 470's are OC'd to 700 so they wouldn't be a whole lot slower than a GTX590. Note the the labels are wrong, the pink line is actually the w/the 8800GT.
I also started the fraps benching after like 3 seconds into the actual benchmark, to avoid the slow load at the beginning. This makes my AVG slightly higher, and the MIN much, much higher than what's reported by the benchmark tool at the end.
I'm guessing if you were to OC your proc to 4.0GHz like mine is you probably would end up exceeding my performance slightly. With a 590 to power, you really should have that CPU OC'd
