Second (cheap) card for PhysX?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone
I was reading stuff on the internet about fps drops with PhysX on medium/high in Borderlands 2 (I've been playing with PhysX low settings until now but i noticed the game loses a lot). Finally I found out that i can use a second card for PhysX and leave the 570 doing the rest of the work. Is it worth it?
I don't like sli and crossfire (i prefer to use a better single card) but i could buy another gpu for this if not so expensive.
Anyone can give me some advice about it?
Thanks

I think the better option would be to sell and buy a better card, or buy another 570 for sli.

A GTX285+ PhysX solution is great. It's all about the stream processors when determining PhysX performance. Choosing to low of a performing card in relation to your default card can actually lower frames.

GTX 460. I just picked one up the other day to help my 670 out in Borderlands 2. Although if I were in your position I'd just get another 570, but I haven't had many SLI/CF issues.

Is the gtx285 better because it has more cuda processor?
I didn't understand if a lower card can create a bottleneck, even if only for physx...
Thanks all
