GTX 570 plus GTX 260 Dedicated Physx

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, recently i was offered a GTX 260 from a friend that needs cash so I've been curious to try out a PhysX setup but not too sure if I have enough power for it. Right now I own a Corsair TX650w power supply and was wondering if that would be sufficient to go along with my GTX 570.

Do you guys think ill be fine or will I need more power to juice these cards?

Yea You should be fine, that PSU is pretty good and its not like the 260 will be loading 100% (all the time), nor the 570 or rest of system

A GTX 260 is a great card for PhysX (I'm using one alongside my GTX 470).
(and yes, I am upgrading towards SB lol)
