Default Re: So if I buy a GTX 280, my 8800gt will do the physics, on a non-SLI board?

More particles and effects on screen, offloads some of the cpu load etc..

Unfortunately Cell Factor uses Aegea physx only and does not support Geforce physx

Yep it works on an Intel chipset, even the ancient i975x.

Warmonger, results @ a 1440x res. Max settings. CPU is a Q6600 G-0 @ 3.51GHz.

GTX 260 @ 760|2600 1580 = 93FPS



Adding an 8800GT @ 700|2000 1750 = 123FPS



As above but 1920x-

Single GTX 260 doing PhysX while targeting the sent gun = 71FPS



Adding an 8800GT @ 700|2000 1750 to do PhysX = 88FPS



Of course this is with 177.83 drivers and the latest PhysX.

Has anyone done discreet PhysX testing on an Intel P35 (or similar) chipset, where the second PCI-E slot runs at x4?

If you arrange your monitors like the following (or some variation), you'll be less likely to have the mouse fall off. If it does fall off, you have to remember which direction to go to get it back, though.
