it's a good article on how much a more powerful physx stand alone card actually matters up to a certain point in current games.
Thanks for the link. This also answers my question. If a GT240's performance is like that for 1920x1200, then it will handle a resolution of 1600x900 with ease like pioneerisloud had mentioned

i love physx and i'm sad to see it not implemented more effeciently in games. it does add a new level of realism to game that you don't see on amd cards alone. I don't see nvidia dropping physx anytime soon and I expect a big push for physx in the upcoming crysis 2 game. to me the more it's utilized in games, the better it feels refined overall.

I use a gt 240 with my 6870 and handles mafia 2 great. im between 45-60fps at all times. i do have the evga dd5 SOC version tho. It's like 70$ on newegg when i bought it. I would recommend the single slot sparkle gts 450 tho.

I agree it will. Still if you are buying a physx card to start with then get a 260 or equal. that monitor will be upgraded eventually. why not future proof? just something to consider.

Well, as for Crysis 2, it has not been confirmed that it will be PhysX compatible (keeping my fingers crossed).

Guess I'll go to MC and pick-up a GT240 this evening
