Default Re: GTX 285 and PCI-E 8x....

Just to followup. I did try Cryostasis again and saw a HUGE improvement in physx enabled scenes when using only the 285 for physx + graphics.

For the most part it seems this 8600 GT is just too underpowered to be of any use

Keep the Physx card. There is barely a hit when dropping to 8x pci-e 2.0 and even 1x is not "that" bad. Check out the tests done on a 5870
