I have a GTX 650 ti and I am wanting a Physx card to go with it but I only have a PCI slot free and I am waiting for DX12 GPUs to come out before I drop about $400-$500 on a new mother board and GPU so I am looking for a dedicated Physx card to hold me over until then
and as far as I can find the GT 610 is the best Nvidia card that is on the PCI interface will this work well or would it slow my computer down all together?
and my CPU and PSU should handle the extra card fine (FX-6300 and 500w coursair PSU that is brand new) and the 650 ti is an ASUS DCU2 factory overclocked and I personally pushed it another 200mhz on the core and the memory.
thanks in advance

You could get a GTX 750 Ti, assign that as your primary GPU, and make your GTX 650 Ti the PhysX card. But for a cheaper cost, you could get a GT 630.

Your 650TI is about as low as you would want to go for a physx card. The 650 is barely a gaming card as it is. So a phsyx card will do you exactly zero good in this setup. Don't do this it will not let you turn up any settings or make anything look better when all your settings have to be low or medium already.

@Joseph DeGarmo He only has PCI as second slot so all that you said cannot be done. He needs to forget about this in his current setup alltogether.

What size screen do you have if it is 1080P you are not close to maxing "Most things" any way any card you put in a PCI slot will do you no good as a phsyx card the card most reccomended was the gtx 260/460/560 ect all of these cards are better than your main card maybe not the 260 not sure but anyway my point is just stop going this rout maybe on your next board use the 650 as the phsyx card.

I'm not trying to start an argument but I have a 1080p screen and I run things like bf3 at med high settings and borderlands 2 completely maxed except for view distance and physx and the view distance is because I only have 1 gig of vram
and I see what you are saying about the pci cards though and my 650ti is faster than all of the cards you just mentioned

You would be better off upgrading to a GTX 760, then. It will perform much better, even with PhysX enabled in games.

Yeah that's what I was just looking at because I was reading that DX12 cards might not even be out until late 2015
and a 4 gb 760 is only like $300 so I think that is what I will do.
would the 650 ti make a good physx card?
