I am now in a dilemma, I at the moment have just a 9500gt as my physx card (I know POS right but had it and it does not require allot of power) and it gives me a good boost in metro2033 and mafia2 but I can mod my case get a bigger PSU and install my spare gtx460 but I don't see where a physx card really brings out allot more in FPS just seems to be a nudge so should I just stick with the small fps boost or spend money and just see if it helps more or do you know anyone that has tried 3 460's all 1gb versions which seems to mater as my buddy had two 1gb and one 768mb and it hurt his performance and as of now my 9500gt is the 1gb version

well what could try is running them at stock and checking if your fps boost is worth it. I mean run the 2 460s on stock with the 9500gt and see what kind of perfornace you get then switch over and do the same with the 460. Your PSU is more than enough for 3 460s. My whole system draws something like 550w, also iirc physx doesn't require that much power so you should be fine, however it may have to be done on stock. Reason being is that your PSU, (if' its the yellow on and old one) it's a good psu but apparently the 12v rail is actually rated slighlty lower which in turn provides something like 750w.

Not sure as to why your gonna have to mod the case (very unfamiliar with what you have), but try running the test outside your system, I personally would leave the 9600gt in there, it's not a bad card for physx and at the moment there aint THAT many titles that benefit from it, but it's always nice to squeeze every last framerate possible, in that case I would say try it!!! lol


BTW how you guys liking the reviews?? any critisism?

With 280.19 I was crashing out of BC2 and WoW constantly. I rolled back to 275.33 and all is good in the land of Nvidia.

Do the 275.33 drivers affect folding at all?

Unfortunally im not sure, you would have to head over to the folding section for that. I do know that folder's did have a problem with the 270.x drivers but not sure about the 275.x and the new beta driver.

I persuaded my boss to get an i5-2500K/P8P67 Pro combo, and put the same graphics card in it I had used with the hexacore 970 at first, a mere GT440 DDR3.

Mildly surprised to find that at 5047MHz the 2500K could not beat the 3DMk11 score the 970 got at 3300MHz....but all other 3DMarks the i5 could better. So thinking that 3Dmark11 is definitely more optimised for multi threading....

Looking forward to the review.

I think vantage is the same...

Thanks bud should be sometime during the weekend. if the WHQL gets released before that then it would be better, I think I read somewhere that there was a bug fix intended for the WHQL version, nevertheless I will do a review in the weekend

Update 280.19

Well I just installed the 280.19 beta and so far so good, well what I mean by that is my BOOTMGR, post display and windows startup logo are viewable. For me that's a good start. I mentioned this because, with the 275X drivers I wasn't able to view it for some reason. Here is the little problem I have with them:



EDIT (12/06/2011):

Just a little update for the latest 275.33.

I recently installed a second os for my 3 f3's in raid 0 and now im running 2 window 7 os's as a dual boot.

My issue was simple, my boot screen disapeared. I thought I was having a bootmgr error continuously for some reason, I pop in the start up repair and it still didnt work.

Now I went through a couple of troubleshooting methods to find the problem, but none of it was working, I couldn't get the bootscreen to show up through the dvi port. Everytime I connected my other monitor through vga it works everytime and the bootscreen can be seen only through the vga port and not the dvi port/s.

Final thing I tried was roling back the nvidia driver's to 266.58. I did a clean install and unplugged the vga port and ran the dvi port to my HDTV and guess it works flawlessly.

I tried it several times and now the bootscreen and dual boot menu can be seen. The culprit was the 275.33 for some reason. Im now using the 266.58 and all is well.

Any ideas as to why the 275.33 may be causing the bootscreen to dissapear? Obviously has something to do with the resolution but everything was running default on the NVC so can't understand why.

Another thing I found was that I couldn't create custom resolutions on the 275.33 for some odd reason, it kept popping up an error about "already available via pc". Thats very important as sometimes you need to force the correct refresh rate in order for vsync to work correctly in games.

If you have a dual boot setup and don't have this problem then lucky you!!


On that note im stil unable to create a custom resolution and I explained why that is need sometimes in the text above (INFO ON 275.33).


At the moment, I'm going to be gathering all the results and gaming on it for a couple of hours and posting back my findings in the next couple of days.

Stay tuned



EDIT:

Spoke to soon, the bootmgr (dual boot screen) has disapeared, so has the post screen and the windows loading screen, too good to be true. I really have know idea what the hell is causing it. Anything below the 275.33 works fine with my rig booting up, however with the 275.33+ they just seem to wana crap out and go straight into the desktop rather than through the post screens nd windows loading screen.

Anyways been a bit busy but hopefully should have something for you guys soon.
