Default Batman Physis with 275 GTX & Agae Physics Card

Just wondering, would it make a difference if I installed my original Agae Physis Card along side my 275 GTX?....

Yeah, they say that the Physx implemented on the GFX cards is far superior to the dedicated cards - glad I dodged that bullet and didn't buy one (and sorry you did).

So, in order to see higher quality in graphics, I need to install my old 9800 GTX card? I'm not following the logic here....

I added a spare 8800gt from work for physx and the performance increase was huge with all setting maxed, 1920x1080 res 4xaa and 16xaf forced in CP. I think the average went from 42 to 75. I didnt write it down but let me just say this.


Before the 8800gt it was running in the 40's a lot. Now I t stays at 60 about 90% of the time with some drops to in to the 40's. Dropping aa to 2x or raising it to 8x seems to make no difference in performance.

Oh my main card is a 280gtx evga oc edition.

You need the older card plus your current card. Your GTX for graphics and the 9800 for PhysX...

Did you have to connect the two cards together?

no, nvidia control panel recognizes it right away. Just plug the card into the pci slot and give it some juice.

Wow. I installed the second card (9800 GTX), and it is a HUGE difference.
