Default Re: PhysX question

Well, since it's just sitting around from my previous build, I said why not. If you think it's not worth it, then I may consider selling it. I'm still debating with myself as I want Metro 2033 to run as smooth as possible @1080p with all settings cranked to max with all the bells and whistles turned on. I figured that if SLI GTX 680's are getting around 60 fps, then that would mean that I would have an average of around 50-55 fps unless OC is taken into account. I just want the smoothest gameplay possible and too future proof for a while too. I figured that with my spare GTX 560 Ti running as a PhysX card, it would give the SLI 670's more headroom for a smoother gameplay. Do you think it's worth it? My PSU can handle it too, I just tested it with a few benchmark programs such as Unigine Heaven, 3Dmark 11 and such. I will run a few more stress test and see how the PSU handles everything before I decide what to do with the spare card. I see you have a similar build to mine, nice
