Actually there are are 200+ games that use Physx. But only 20 of those can offload the calculation to the GPU. Of those 2 dozen, only 5 are games of any real note.

... Yeah ... pretty worthless unless you are really a Mafia II or Batman lover...

Are there any good games coming this year with Physx support?

No, it really won't. Maxed out Mafia 2 on a 580 will have a number of places in the game where there is noticeable lag that will go away if you have a dedicated physX card.

That's really about the only game that you actually will get a noticeable gain though from a dedicated card, if you have a 580. Batman it will give you a gain, but the game is so easy to run, even maxed out, that these extra FPS are more or less superfluous. Probably at a really high resolution you'd get some benefit to the dedicated card though.

I wouldn't buy a PhysX card, but if I had an extra decent card laying around, I'd use it.

I disagree, everyone should buy physX cards... RIGHT NOW!

And hey, I just so happen to have one for sale right now (see sig)!
post #16 of 17
I personally wouldn't recommend it. You can check my sig for benchies on how one improves performance, but you'll also notice that there are only two games even worth considering having a Physx card for. And to be honest, the extra performance for just those games would not be worth it IMO, especially with a GTX 580 as a primary card.

Hey brettjv, Dont talk when you dont even have a gtx580. I had 1 gtx 480 and it worked fine with Mafia 2 maxed out. So sick of this BS advice.
