Default Re: Best PhysX card

Hey Doc I don’t know if a dedicated PhysX card is worth it honestly, if you dig Batman, Mirrors Edge or the few other Physx titles it has a nice gain, but the gtx480 is a monster and can handle both duties well.....

I have done a few of these test with an 9800gt I have laying around here and in my discoveries I have yet to find a compelling reason for an add on PhysX card if using a high-end card like a 285 and up.

For example I had played the demo of Batman it was a nice gain, but on the free coupon code i had for Cryostasis in my short time with the game (Hated the pace) the couple of frame gains was not worth the added heat and power consumption IMHO. But if you want to experiment then use a 9800gt as a minimum with an GTX480.
