2. in nowadays games (like Mirror's Edge or any other PhysX-able game) what's the performance difference between using a discrete GPU and using the integrated GPU (if really possible, that's it) for physics effects?
(the truth is I have the integrated GPU disabled from BIOS, maybe it's time to wake it up...)
I've never heard of anyone doing this, so I don't know if it will work... but I'm fairly certain that it'd just hurt your performance.
The shader processors are the things that do the physics calculations. A 9800GT with 112 SPs is generally recommended for physx. The Geforce 8200 has... 8
I wouldn't bother.
