Well jeez, I didn't even know that one existed! Thanks for that, I'll definitely get to the hack-job later tonight on merging them.

Hi everyone i have a P5Q3 P45 Chipset. i was wondering is it worth reducing my current Card 4870 to 8x to use a 9600GT as Dedicated PhysX, i have read from some that it does not impact the performance as 4870 bandwidth does not exceed 8x PCI-E. Any thoughts.

At 8x PCI-e bandwidth, it will have no noticeable difference, I say go make use of your second PCI-e slot and put that 9600 GT in

i have a 512 9500gt (i kno it sucks, bad idea, waste of time, shouldna got it oh well too late i have it lol)
any way i plan on getting a gtx260 would it be worth it to even go Sli with the 9500gt for physx or will it just slow down the 260gtx, either way ill benchmark each way and post somewhere on here for future ppl's reference but it would be nice to kno what other people thought before i do it. also would it be worth it to OC the 95 before hand too? i did a lil research online ahead of this posting as its only fair so im not asking friveless questions, whatya think?

Id say the 9500gt would do a decent job ,the 9600gso i got for my system gave
me roughly another 9 frames on top of the 9 i got with my 8500gt.I figured the gtx260 really wouldnt need a physx card.maybe someone that has 1 could tell you better.Im running a hd3850 agp and a 9600gt together.

This is a really dumb question but please indulge me: Is it worth running PhysX?

I've got 2 GTX 260s in SLI, when I turn on PhysX the display tells me it's running off the CPU, I can't notice a difference in games (Batman AA, Dragon Age, Cod Waw) between it being on and off. Am I missing something? Or does it not make a significant performance difference either way?
post #27 of 269
PhysX makes that new Batman game look, much better than on an ATI card.

Outside of that it is just a gimmick like CUDA.

Ok so how do you have 2 GTX 260's in SLI with a 8800GT for Physx? Without having one of the 260's used for that?

You can specify which card is dedicated towards PhysX, it gives you the option in the nVidia control panel.

What would be really cool, if you have the time, is too see a list of games that support Physx and the effects it allows in the game.
