Thread Starter 
I'm using a resolution of 1920x1080. Knowing that the 570/580 are powerful gpu's, I'm trying to decide if having the 570 with a nice gpu for physX will suffice. I have not really seen any reviews or analysis about physX that will help me decide regarding these gpu's. Any help will be greatly appreciated. All I'm concerned about is using a single dedicated gpu for graphics + a dedicated gpu for physX. Not interested in SLI, so please don't waste your time trying to convince me. SLI will come in to play when 3D Surround is actually worth investing to me

I'd say a GTX570+GTS450 for PhysX might be a great combination. but thats just my 2c.

Make sure you get at least a mid to medium-hi gpu otherwise your gtx 5*0 will just outperform your physx card, rendering it useless

i had a gtx 470 and a gt240 for physx and it was useless, the gt240 doing ALL the physx was slower than the single gtx 470 doing both

GTX 580 + GTS450 [minimum] or GTX 560 [PhysX] if money is no issue

btw, Although the GTX580+GTX460 is the better option performance-wise, You REALLY don't need it.. so I voted for the GTX570+GTS450. Hell I'm doing extremely great with SLIed GTX 275s, if you're gonna be gaming you really dont need that much power lol
