Cheapest dedicated physx card I can buy? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I'll actually be making a thread soon with a few benchmarks comparing 780 SLI vs 780 SLi with 660 PPU. I'm just waiting for Origins tonight to complete it. With that said I have to say with 780s the performance increase is negligible in the games I tested, Borderlands 2 being the exception.

You can see how much adding a physx card will help by running your own benchmark. In the Nvidia Control Panel or in game, turn off Physx. Run benchmark, then run benchmark with it on. The difference in FPS would be about what you would get if you added a dedicated card. You will see that the difference is 1-2 FPS at most with modern cards.

From my research that would be way too slow to pair with a 780.

GTX 640 passive. It should work well as a secondary CUDA card.

dont buy ddr3 card, it will bottleneck ur system, there is 2 models for gtx640 with ddr5 on the market. And they are cheap.

search for that if you still want it. Gainward GT640 1GB GeForce Graphics Card
