Default Re: 480 on the way. Power worries with 2nd card as Physx ?

Long as you got your minimums up near 60FPS, then I'd think one is GTG without the add-on physx. Surely a 480 can pull that minimum framerate off also doing the physx on resolutions of 1920x or lower in most every title.

Batman is the only fun and moderately high end game I'm aware of that makes enjoyable and heavy use of physx. Again, based on my experience with my GTX285, a GTX 480 will eat that game and it's physx at the same time for breakfast, lunch, and supper.
