Question about Physx using an 8800GTS 512MB

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have a 570 but I'm thinking about using one of my old 8800 as a Physx card. How exactly does this work? Will I see a performance increase in FPS or what? Could someone please explain this to me. Thanks!

Which 8800 are you talking about? the GS, GT GTS or GTX?

Well to install it you put the 8800 in its appropriate PCIe slot in the motherboard and power it. It doesn't need an SLI Bridge.

Then go to the Nvidia Property panel, Right click on your desktop to get there. and then choose the 8800 as the dedicated Phsyx card.

You may see a slight increase but i doubt it. I Recently added my GTS 250 as a dedicated card for the use in batman and I did not notice a performance increase at all. I just let my 560 ti do all the work.
