GTX 580 w/ 8800 GTS as PhysX ... Too Weak ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, on my current setup, would a 8800 GTS (640Mb) be enough for a 580 GTX to use as PhysX dedicated ? or should I invest and go with like a GTX 260 instead ?

Thanks for the help guys

GTX260 would be moar'n enough. Id say a good card with low power/noise reqs would be a nice solid GTS250, grab that and youll be golden.

thats a 1gb version, it should be better than a 512 but the XFX 512 is 35$ cheaper and looks SOOOOOO good.

The 580 should be good enough on its own.
I did some 470 tests with a gts250 as the ppu.

And here are some 8800gt vs gts250 numbers.
