what is a good phsyx card

post #1 of 48
Thread Starter 
i am looking to add a 3d card to my rig and mostly use it for phsyx games and to hlep my 460's along. i know you can't tri sli the 460's but my ponder is is there a good card that will compliment my sli?

or is there another card out that that i can buy a single now and possibly upgrade to tri later on?

The 8800GT in my gaming rig complements my GTX470 well at 19200x1200. So something on that power level, maybe a little more should prove beneficial to you.

Do you play any of the 13 games that even use PhysX?



An 8800gt or higher is good enough.

Geforce 9600 or higher is what I reccommend. its a colder more efficcient 8800

Great clocks.

I've actually seen a number of people write on here that when your performance is high enough, you need a PhysX card on par with your main cards to notice the difference. With basically two GTX 470s in SLI (which is what your OC GTX 460s are) I doubt you'll notice a big difference with a 8800/9800 GT.

I can't seem to find it now, but there was a review and the sweet spot seemed to be around the (216) GTX260.

I know some will say even that is over kill but you can get one for under $100 now and nothing higher seems to impact physx.

If you decide to go that route I may know someone looking to sell his......

I know there was testing done with different PhysX cards, the GTX 275-285 was the minimum for minimum/no Bottleneck

IIRC the 8800GT is almost exactly equal to a 9800GT. Next comes the 9800GT+ and the 9800GTX after that. I think the GTS 250 is on par with the 9800GTX.

You should be able to find single slot versions of all of these cards, except maybe the 9800GTX/GTS 250.
