gtx570 worth it for £70? possible physx card?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Got a mate who's selling bits off for cheap, I'm thinking about taking his gtx570 for £70, would it work in my current SIG rig as a physx card? Or would it be worth swapping out with my 6970?

And, is the price OK?

Excellent on all fronts. Be honest with you I think its a waste as just a physx card. I think the 570 outperformed the 6970 though.

I've seen the two trade blows in benchmarks with the 570 coming out on top overall but I was thinking that in games with physx I would probably get higher frames if I split the load between the two rather than having the 570 doing everything?

Eh, what do you mean split the loads between the two? The thing is, you can't split physx calculations between the 2. Its either on the 570 with the 6970 doing graphics, or if you have the 570 as main card, the 570 does everything. Its worth the money, but you should either sell the card for a profit, or use it as a main and sell the 6970. Of course you could do what I'd do and build another rig. Its all up to you.
