I have an 8400GS on a original Intel945GC motherboard and Core2Duo E4300
@1.8 GHz. I want to know if the Physx would run better on the processor or on my GPU as I'm planning to upgrade to HD 4770(I don't know if the mobo has 2 PCI-E slots, mostly not, I'm away from home now and would be returning by about this month end). If the mobo has 2 PCI-E slots, I would like to know if there's any chance I can use my 8400GS as a dedicated Physx card to get better performance or would the processor do a better job of handling physics of the game? And if the mobo doesn't have 2 PCI-E slots, what is the mobo I can go for that has 2 PCI-E slots at the lowest price?
Also I would like to get some views on how I can upgrade my PC with a very little budget of about INR 20K(Indian Rupees). My PSU has a 12 volt rating of 15-18 amps(
I know I have to get a better one) and I'm looking at Tagan TG500-U37, CoolerMaster RS500-PCARA3-EU, Corsair 400W Power Supply (CX400W). The prices of all the peripherals are from the website http://www.theitwares.com/
I would like to get your views wrt the prices given in the website.
