Hi,
Can I use a pci-e X1 graphics card for physx or does it have to be pcie x16?

the card is an 8400gs pcie x1, would it work well as a dedicated physx card

I also have a 9400gt PCI but I dont think pci cards can be used for physx, what about pcie x1?

And one more question,
I ordered parts for a pc
core i7 860
msi p55 gd65
4gb ddr3


but the psu that i was planning to use died yesterday :( 
i bought another one but now I dont have enough money for a video card. can I use one of the cards 8400gs/9400gt as my gpu???

obviously its a huge bottleneck when combined with i7 but I just need a working pc until i get enough money for a powerful card.

It wouldn't matter if it did as usually for dedicated PhysX a 8800/9800/9600 is the norm from what I have seen. An 8400 wouldn't have the processing power to do anything noteworthy.
