Dedicated physX card for GTX Titan Black Superclocked

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all!
This is my first post here, so cut me some slack if i may be in the wrong area.
Anyway, I have recently built my own gaming rig. Below are some relevant specs:

Motherboard: Asus Maximus VI Formula

CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k (running at factory speeds. I'm not overclocking it as of yet.)

GPU: EVGA GTX Titan Black Superclocked

Since I spent a large amount of money on this rig, I was hoping it would be able to handle just about everything i can throw at it, and it does for the most part. I do, however, get significant FPS drops when playing games that utilise advanced PhysX. Apparently, this is not an uncommon issue. I did some research and found that people buy dedicated Nvidia GPUs to solely process PhysX. I know not many game utilise PhysX, but I tend to play a lot of the games that do, such a Metro Last Light.

My Question then: What GPU would be the best dedicated PhysX GPU so as not to bottleneck my Titan Black?
I was thinking maybe a GTX 770, as they're relatively cheap compared to my Titan. Would it really be worth it though? How much of difference does it really make?

to answer that question knowing what king of monitor you're using would help and are these fps drops making the game unplayable or are you dropping from 125 fps to 110.... btw welcome to OCN feel free to go into your profile and fill out the rig builder so everyone can see what you 're packing

I wonder if a 750ti would be a good PhysX card. Relatively low price @ $130-150 and runs most games pretty effectively @ 1080p by its self. Makes me think it would do just fine for a dedicated PhysX card.
