I am going to be upgrading and it seems like the 5770 is the way to go for my needs, the only downside is no physx support apparently.

Is it possible to use a geforce gt 220 as a physx card along with the 5770?

Also. If this is possible is the gt 220 the way to go for a sole physx card? I only consider that one because it was recommended in an article here for physx use.

I believe Nvidia decided not to allow this.

you'd be better off buying a high end nvidia card than both of those, like a 260.

I was worried about a lack of dx11 support.

Many people still play games, even the newest ones, on DX9. I would consider DX11 a perk, but not a deal breaker. Time could prove me wrong, but it's likely going to be very similar to DX10 where it adds a few nice features, but doesn't make much real world difference.

Well, has there been any word on when we'll be seeing dx11 nvidia cards?

Fermi is nVidia's upcoming new architecture, which will have DX11 support. It's still in the oven though, and there's no hard information more specific than next year.

nVidia would love to get the product out the door as quickly as possible, I'm sure, and I'd look for a release in early spring. The problem is that while they tell us things are coming along nicely, we don't have a lot of information right now to back that up, so they could be trying to convince people to wait on purchasing a fancy new ATI 58xx card (if you can find one, of course).

Ok, I decided to go ahead with this plan.

I was planning on getting this motherboard.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But someone on another forum said that it would be a no go.

I assumed I would use the
>PCI Express 2.0 x16
for the 5770

and the
>PCI Express x16 slot, running at x4
for the gt 220

Is this not right? Will this mobo work? If not what should I be looking for?

You used to be able to run PhysX on an nVidia GPU while an ATI GPU ran the primary graphics.

nVidia though has prevented this functionality from occurring. If you want a dedicated PhysX card, your primary graphics card must be nVidia.
