Its too bad things like PhysX and DX10 just steal FPS. So much for progress.

Beat the demo 3 times now I love it! Dont get me wrong I love eyecandy, I dont want to lose 20 FPS for it though.

Im gonna pop in my 9600GT for dedicated physx and see how it runs with that in there too.

Personally I don't find the GTX 295 very loud at all.

There has got to be a way to avoida 20fps hit for very basic effects. Every time physx is used I get the feeling that either physics calcs are more complex than I imagined or the algorithms used aren't very efficient.

well look at your cooling solution. I'd imagine over all that the 295 is nothing

Ok so I popped in the 9600GT and installed 190.38 - for some reason 190.40 wouldnt work with both cards and physx in Win7. Anyways, set everything to max, 4xaa 1680x1050 and highest physx. Before with just my OC'd GTX 280 I was in the 40s with dips to the 30s. Now I was pegged at 60FPS, just played through the whole demo, there were a few spots on the last big room with the cloth stuff moving I dropped to 54fps but that was the lowest I saw. Definitely need dedicated physx card for this to be on high and maintain 60 FPS.

Except that it's not just papers blowing around. It's total absence of smoke, and missing cloth textures, etc.

After playing it with PhysX enabled I wouldn't play it without it now. I guess if you don't know what you are missing it's no big deal, but seeing all the stuff left out with it turned off is a bummer.

That's because it's not.

A single 285 is just as loud, and a 275 is within a decibel or so. Hell, even a 260 at load is only a couple decibels lower than a 295.

I heard a lot about the noise before i bought mine, and it's highly overstated. I came from a 260 SSC to this card and most of the time it's actually quieter because this 295 doesn't have to ramp the fan up as high to keep cool.

Sure, if you turn the fan up to 100% is a leaf blower, but my card never goes above 65% and my temps never leave the low 70s.

As stated in my post I used the highest PhysX setting and got almost 60 FPS pegged with 9600GT.

Wow, I think I may get a dedicated card myself then.

Problem is there was Mirrors Edge, now Batman. Its not like there are a ton of PhysX games worth having a second GPU in your PC for. Yes, it gives you playable FPS with PhysX on high... but do we really need PhysX?

I had the card sitting here, bought it when I played through ME, made it butter smooth with PhysX on - still for people thinking of going this route consider it.
