Default Re: A question for the Graphics Gurus

a 9600GT is more than enough but faster cards do make a difference however. Check this one out; http://www.driverheaven.net/articles.php?articleid=138

That was a nice article...and it pretty much put things in a perspective.

I'm going to run a benchmark later with SLI vs 285 GTX + 260 GTX (dedicated PhysX).

You could just wait for a month or two and see what Nvidia has up it's sleeve with the new fermi cards

Just saying my good man. Prices could be better for you if you wished to invest in the 285 at that time.

-edit- But it looks like you already got the cards, so never mind

This is Batman: Arkham Asylum with SLI (no dedicated PhysX card)


This is Batman with no SLI, but a dedicated 285 GTX for PhysX:


As you can see, the dedicated PhysX card has a higher average benchmark....but slightly.
