Also they are now known as AMD cards not ATI, unless you are suggesting he buy an old card that from when they were still branded ATI.

If your cpu is powerful wnough shouldnt matter. Also you could take any old gtx card with phsx and make it a dedicated phisX card. If you have an old card, problem sloved. If no, then look around- even a 450 or something like that would actully do better phisX dedacated useing the intagrated one on a 680, cause the whole card would work for phisX. 7970 plus cheap old used gtx if you really want phisX

Sorry to threadjack, but I'm on the fence with the same question. I have my sig rig with 2 GTX 570s SLI, but the amount of heat they produce is ridiculous. I was looking to sell them both and save up a little more for a GTX 680 or a 7970 (since I read that ATI is planning to lower prices). The only way I would keep my SLI setup is if I watercool the cards, but there is a lot of money involved in that.

Man there are 7970's starting at $450 and 7950's in the $380 range on newegg, its tempting, not that long ago my gtx570 was $350! I wanted my next gpu to be the top tier but in reality a 7950 would be an upgrade and with those prices TEMPTING. I dont want to try sli again after a 560ti sli, not that it was bad but one gpu ALWAYS has less troubleshooting than 2. The way I see it I shouldnt need to go through the trouble with a single 1080p 60hz monitor, not worth it. If I was on a single higher res/120hz then It would be worth it.

Im not a physx expert but I have been worried about that and have been told that even games with physx support will also support other methonds for amd cards. So its not like the game will look horrible or very different, personally I would love a side to side comparrison but I might try amd since the current prices are so good.
