If you really want another card, get the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450. I would save the money and just enable PhysX on your NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 for no cost.

Both are overkill. Go with the cheaper model I listed. $65 brand new. Damn good deal.

Sadly not the case. Physx doesn't work well on any card that is also doing rendering. Obviously it does better on more powerful cards, but it still won't do as well as a much weaker card (GT 240 and above) that is dedicated solely to Physx.

Great gimmick to sell more video cards, of course.

you have proof of this?
from my understanding after reading this that is not the case
"For a high-performance setup, such as a GTX 295, a dedicated PhysX card will more-than-likely not give you any gains. The GTX 295 would more-than-likely handle all the load that the game and throw at it, and having a dedicated card for PhysX would probably just be a waste of power. The same can be said for a GTX 285 SLI configurations, and so on and so forth. "

So you're statement is complete inaccurate

As we can see from our testing the GTX295 and GTX285 work exceptionally well when paired up with almost any other Nvidia board in the range, with noticeable gains evident with even the extremely modest 9600GT handling the hardware accelerated physX.

This is analysis of just one game and Physx coding varies widely from one game to another. But this should still give some perspective to the benefit of a dedicated Physx card.

So if you put in "nvidia low profile" into Newegg 6 pages come up. I am not PHY expert but I am sure a few would be great.

You may have driver issues running a secondary card with the GTX570. When I had mine, no driver supported both the 500 and 400 series, it was one or the other... Just sayin'.

Assuming that has been addressed:

Single Slot: GT240, GT430 <= Tons of Low Profile options, too
Dual Slot: GTS250, GTS450

For reference, here is are a few benchmarks I performed with a heavily overclocked GTX470 as the primary card:

(1920x1200, Max Settings)

I'd go for the GT430 or GTS450, myself. Also, you should Fold on it as well
