Default Re: a little warning about gtx 480 and dedicated physx cards

Over this weekend I played around a little with a dedicated Physx card I had laying around (9800gt) and my GTX480. Frankly having the dedicated Physx was a real waste IMHO, Ill explain, the additional power, heat that is required is NOT WORTH ADDING IT.
Also I didnt get much if any boost in frames and my Vantage score where lower with the 9800gt so IMHO not worth it I pulled it out of the rig.
