Hey guys

I'm lookin for a PhysX card but I'm not willing to spend much cuz I'm rather low on budget so... I got like 2 options which are really acceptable budget-wise

1. 8400GS 512MB
2. GT210 512MB

Now look at my sigrig, Do you think they will be enough for PhysX? or will they be too weak, Bottleneck etcetera?

I don't think they are capable of PhysX. Need a minimum of 32sp. I could be wrong.

8800gt, 9800gtx, or gts250 would be your best bets for PhysX.

I dont have the budget for those, that's why I asked about those 2 cheap cards.

they wont help you too much ... those two I mean.
either save some more money for at least a 9800GT or something
or save more money sell that 275 and get something better.
either way if you want a physx card for Mafia 2, might as well forget about it.

I can run Mafia 2 flawlessly, not an issue.. Just looking to improve the performance cheaply
, I guess I will have to wait since my current budget is just around 70 bucks lol

Neither one of the cards you listed in the OP can do PhysX. It requires at minimum 32 CUDA cores (so an 8600GT / 9500GT / GT220 minimum).

Mafia 2 doesn't even run flawlessly on a 480 maxed with PhysX on.

$70 will get you an 8800gt or a 9800gt/gtx easily on these boards.

for me 30FPS and above stable is good enough

This. If you dont have at least $50 to spend(for a used card) then dont worry about getting one.
