Personally, I think it's overkill for just physx. I'm not famaliar with multiple card setups, but I can say that with my hybrid setup and the 9800gt handling physx, the 9800 never gets over 40% workload. After all, it's just for a lot of smaller effects here and there instead of the bulk that your 470 takes on. For games, I'd say SLI them (if you can-I'm not sure how strict nvidia's are about which can SLI together) for better performance if that's your big concern.

Others may have different experiences, but I'd get a cheap 9600GSO ($20 at microcenter sometimes) and get the small boost from offloading some of the work from your main card.

Now, if you're folding, then that's a whole other story

Oh, and I broke the top 400. It's the little things.

Luckily, only the 4 inch extension cable burned up. When I removed that, I found that the rest of the system was unaffected.

I was looking in on a second card for gaming and folding.

@Klaxian - good to hear the rest of the system is okay. Time to fire up that soldering iron and make one you can rely on.

@Onions - sorry to hear man, hope you get back up and running soon! The Misfits will get a big head if we don't give 'em some competition.

@Alex - Yeah a 450 is overkill just for PhsyX. The most recommended (i.e. cheap) is 8800/9800 (a 9600 has no cuda, so won't to PhysX). The cards put out 5-6K PPD.
Although a 450 would kill PhysX, if you want to fold on it as well it would be the better option as its PPD is more like 8-10K.

@tismon - 'grats man, its a good feeling every one of those 100 marks

lol A 9600 will do PhysX... anything since GeForce 8 can

So it is, I stand corrected - http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_gpus.html
Yeah I knew about since the 8 series (got one in the sig rig); just the models, I thought needed cuda cores for PhysX... apparently not though.

All of the GeForce 8 and 9 have "CUDA" cores

Hmm, stopped getting reply notifications for this thread. Odd

Anyway, I was wondering about your comment zenith since I saw a few entries in the GPU database, but then lethal beat me. And of course, thanks zenith for the congrats.

And now I'm working on a 6701 that's only worth 921 at base. Now where did I put those 6900s I was complaining about?
