8800 GTS - sell or dedicate to Physx

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I currentyly have a MSI NX8800GTS 512M OC GeForce 8800GTS with 2 19 monitors.
Just ordered MSI GTX 470 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814130549

Should I keep the 8800 for PhysX and second monitor or sell it and run everything off the 470?

If I keep the 8800 do I plug both monitors into the 470 or one in each?

Do you play any Physx games?

Not currently, but what is the trend? Are more games moving in that direction?

I hate to break it to you, but the link you provided is an eVGA 470, not an MSI .

I'd sell it personally. But I also don't care too much for PhysX. And I also just bought a GTX 470 myself as well.

Not really.

You might as well sell it, especially if you don't use PhysX much.

Yup I play Physx games and I got rid of my Physx card lol.
I'd sell that sucker. Craigslist eats 8800's for breakfast.

You are correct, I bought the eVGA card! Sorry about that.

I think I will sell the 8800. Looks Like I can still get 40-50 for it on ebay.

sell it.
I set physx to auto and was just fine without a dedicated physx card

I had a MSI NX8800GTS 512M OC for Physx with my GTX470, but I don't play many physx games so the 8800 card was at 0% useage moast of the time, but still cunsumed alot of power, limiting airflow for my GTX470 so the fan needed to spin at 90% and I still had 90C GPU temp (with no overclock!)

so the 8800 went into my brothers computer, and his card I gave away to a friend for christmas.

If you don't need it for physx, sell it to someone who will fold with it. Those cards still push out nice points ^_^
