So i'm thinking about grabbing a physx cards. Just so happens the handful of games that are good and have physx are actually ones I'm interested in playing, but I want the full experience. One of those is the recently released Mafia II and also Crazy Machines II. My question is, would a GT 240 do me just fine? or would a 450/460 be better?

Just curious, they may sound like over kill but I hear Mafia II is pretty demanding on a dedicated physx so that leads me to believe future games may require a little more power as well. If anything would the 450 handle physx better than the GT 240? I was thinking about just getting that in case something happened to my 5970. Any information is greatly appreciated.

EDIT:

Cards I'm looking at:

240

460

450

And yes, I love overkill.

Yea iv also seen where mafia II requires a pretty powerful physx card. For most physx, a 9800GT will do great. GT240 is decent as well. I am using a 9600GSO and its decent. Depending on how much money I had to spend, I would go with a 9800GT(X+). If I really had money to blow I would get a GTX460.

Yeah I'm thinking about the 460, I only want it just in case a better game comes out and requires more power. Can anyone vouch for these cards with Mafia II? I only want to know because its suposedly the most power hungry for a phsyx.
