GTX 650 Ti Boost with GT 640 for PhysX? Thoughts?

I just recently bought a GTX 650 Ti Boost to replace my GT 640. Would it be advantageous to use my GT 640 for PhysX, or would it slow that processing down in reality? I don't know if that's the kind of thing you have to test, or if anyone has any thoughts on that.

Cheers

Normally a model or two down is fine for PhysX, like using a 650 for PhysX and adding in a 660 or 670 or 680. The 640, while a step down, is a fairly crippled card and low budget. Best thing to do would be test a PhysX game with and without the card as a PhysX card and then with and without the 650 ti doing the graphics and physX and see what results you get.

Yeah, that's a very good pairing. The GT 640 has a relatively high CUDA core count, which is key for PhysX.

First, you need to make sure you actually play GPU accelerated PhysX games. What games do you play?
