Hi Guys,

I have received a 2nd hand EVGA GTX 470 SC and its just lying around. So I was thinking if i should use it as a PhysX card and get a boost. Aside from this would the additional power consumption and heat be worth the additional performance?

What is your primary video card? What are your power supply specs?

1050W. Shutter every time I hear of a PSU with that number. Nobody should every make a PSU with that output again after what Diablotek did...

Do you play any PhysX games? You're probably better off just selling it and using the $$$ for something else.

Install the 570 as primary video card and use the 560 for Phys-X. Duh!

Well i mainly play BF3 now and other FPS titles. I was thinking of selling it later if I have a buyer but I was just wondering would the performance increase be enough to justify the increase in power draw. hahahaha I think the only game that I play that would benefit is Alice. hahahaha.

Well the GX1050 has received great reviews and some sites still use it for their bench systems.
