Is it good for PhysX and what gpu are you using in that 2.0 4x pci-e lane if you're using it?

Thanks in advance

Should work just fine. You can even run a PhysX card @ 1x slot, but at this point you'll see a slight performance hit. AFAIK, The performance loss between 16x to 8x is non-existant, and between 16x to 4x is very minimal. it's only 16x to 1x that is noticeable on Benchmarks.

EDIT: Just noticed you also asked for a GPU suggestion. I would get a GTS250 or a GTS450 since nowadays they are the best for PhysX, Although you can also use a 9800GT and even a 8800GT efficiently, as long as the primary card isn't too high-end. (Ex. GTX560 + 8800GT = NO)
