I've currently got a 780 and playing borderlands 2 with physx on anything but low with 3 or more people becomes impossible. I've had 15fps at times :/
So I'm curious as to what is the best card to buy to go along with my 780 to just do physx or should I just not bother? I have been looking at a 2gb Gainward GeForce GT 630 would that be good enough?
i'm gunna toss my 2 cents into this.
currently running a 780ti and a 580 for dedi physx (don't wanna hear it, its my old card)
using fluidmark 1.5.2 you are able to benchmark physx capabilities (to have the benchmark run only on your main card for referance you need to disable your dedi physx gpu, as it will force dedi physx if it detects an available non sli'd gpu capable of physx)
with dedicated physx, your fps is more stable (1440p +1080p tested) and 5-15fps higher.
IN BL2 with everything maxed @ 1440p (can't remember if ambient occultion is on or not) I get the frame rate stability with a dedicated card, and only about +2-5 frames on the average but +30 frames on the min. apposed to running physx on the main card.
I'm considering a 750ti to replace the hog of a gtx 580 and am thinking i will get better physx performance (more faster cores + faster memory) the PNY overclocked one looks nuts 1200/6008 if the store website can be trusted (canadacomputers, not some random site)
