Default Re: What is the best dedicated PhysX card?

If it does make that much difference, I may have to grab one.
It kind of depends, there are some scenes in Batman AA that use very demanding PhysX effects and other times where it is hardly using any. I think Cryostasis uses more demanding physics just in general. But the scenes in Batman AA where you are up against Scarecrow are pretty demanding, probably just as much as any other physx title. Of course in Ghostbusters they were able to achieve the same type of effects using just CPU physics but whatever....
