it actually isn't a bad idea.....

No I guess not, so long as you know your main card will always get a higher score since it doesn't have to render anything in the physx test

Its more testing the raw power of your cards than the actual power since your ability to do physx while rendering will be reduced.

I mean my gtx 470 will destroy my 9800GT in Vantage when they're doing the physx part, but that doesn't mean the gtx 470 is better without the 9800Gt, or that it will be anywhere near as good as the vantage test indicates in actual gaming.

OP-I would just use the 580 without the dedicated Physx card. you dont need one with that much power
another common misconception.
no the GTS 250 is NOT = to the 8800 GT

8800 GT has 112 cores. GTS 250 has 128 cores
not to mention about 100-200 MHz difference in frequencies and the amount of DDR3.

Dedicated? I don't think I can ever justify that. But will I get a more powerful nVidia card, because I know Physx effects can tax the GPU a bit more than normal? Yes... yes I would.

Then again, I also got the 3D Vision kit, so I shouldn't babble too loudly

If it's lying around doing nothing then why not give it a go?

I have a 9800GT for PhysX and I've NEVER seen it go above 70% load so ignore everyone who says it's not enough

Ok soo....

I wanted to update everyone.

I managed to actually trade in my two (2) old 8800GT for one (1) GTX 280 (had to throw in some extra cash).

Using the 280 will definitely yield much better results and performance as a dedicated physx card alongside with my *currently* single GTX 580, right? Being a much more updated card and all..

I'm just waiting for the 280 to arrive but I am very eager and excited to try it out.

My plans are to have the 580 + 280 on my main rig. A few months down the road I will get another 580 and put the 280 into my sub rig.

What do you guys think?

Wow supports it kinda...theres a sli profile but from 1 card you get say 60 fps with 2 you get 62 fps..thats coming from exp..but also the new drivers that came out has a so callled better sli setings for wow i dont have my second card still to try it

i use the secondary card on my GX2 as dedicated physx (GX2 is 2 8800gts 512's) runs fine for me. in warmonger if i leave physx set to recommended my framerate barely goes over 34 frames per second but when i dedicate GPU1 its never below 70. so dedicated phsyx does help in physx heavy games.

So, I had a similar situation to original poster, and figured I'd throw out my results.

running Q6600 2.4ghz quad core
4GB RAM
32bit windows 7 (so only some of ram is actually functional.../win?)
GTX580
8800GT for physx

Using mafiaII demo benchmark tool and max settings at 1680x1050res I pulled 19.9 avg fps with the gtx580 all on its lonesome doing physx.
26.2 avg fps with the 8800gt chugging away at physx

This is one example, but it DID pull about a 30% increase in performance.

Now to save up some cash and get a real processor and some 64-bit action with some quality ram.

Yes well Mafia 2 is the only game i have seen yet that uses a dedicated Physx card well.
