ATI IS NOT NVIDIA ... PhysX is from NVDIA
In other words buy an nvidia card

I told you clearly before you need a 2nd GPU *Nvidia* card as for dedicated PhysX
As well if you went in the link I posted you it will literally tell you that lol

Ordered 2x6850 for less then 300 euro's, could have waited for 69xx but the price is 200 more euro's and thats to much for me . Also the 6850 are nice clockers.

Any review will say otherwise.

Stock GTX280 wattage is eclipsed only by the 480, and noise level is near the top of the scale too. Mine is overvolted and runs 90% fan speed to keep under 80C. It's loud, it's inefficient, and it can heat an entire room... the 6870 is the opposite.

Wow, scaling comparison of 6870s vs gtx580s

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/A...ossFire/8.html

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/N...580_SLI/8.html

I can see why they left the 6870s out of the 580 review. 480 dollar setup compares well to 1k dollar setup, right?

6870CF raped the gtx 580. look at gtx 580SLI vs. HD6870CF performance wasn't even that far considering the price. that's what I call bang for buck

Haha yea that's pretty awesome. GTX 580 scaling is pretty disappointing, and 6870s scale amazingly well (especially compared to previous Radeon cards). Although scaling should improve for the 580 with mature drivers, it won't be all that much. Not bad though, but it's not like the 6870s can compete like that in all games
2 mid-ranged cards vs 2 high-end cards, just a shame you can't Tri/Quad SLI them but there would be lots of driver issues and stuff too
