[OUT OF DATE]How To: Run PhysX in Windows 7 with ATi Cards - Page 105

Try this first, see if it will reset and redetect the hardwares:

1. Clear CMOS to remove all OC setting and load BIOS Optimized Defaults.

2. Remove the soundcard, sure it is sharing the PCIe lanes.

3. Check with GPU-Z the bandwidth assigned to each GPU core, x16/x8/x4?

I have a 8800GTX with monster cooler.

Maybe I should just put it in my system for physx games?

Thanks, I had to reseat the cards I suppose because now it works great. I get 60 fps in batman with high physx on.

*Am so envious of you guys who can run PhysX on your ATI cards.*

A hardware PhysX solution isn't even feasible for me as I just realised my Sabertooth P67 mobo only has X1 PCI-e slots and not X4.

I didn't plan on physx but I did happen to think about why I would need anything but PCI-E slots so I bought a big bang mobo which has like 6 or 7 PCI-E slots which allowed a larger number of different configuration options. I had barely enough room to fit all three 2 slot cards.

2x 6950 are AMD cards, are you sure the 8800GTX will drag it down?

You have the card, just give it a try and see how it goes. It's not you are going out to buy the card. I think it will bottleneck games like Madia II, Batman AA but not at all for Metro 2033 as it is not as PhysX intensive as those two titles.

I was originally looking at the GT 430, but now I am worried that it may severely restrict performance. Any thoughts on a relatively low cost solution?

Thanks in advance.

I have a single 6970 and getting a GTS 450 512mb as a dedicated physx card next month.
Seems best price/performance choice with future space if some more physx intensive games come out, ( Metro Last Light?)
