Best single-slot NVIDIA card?

Hi all, I was just wondering what the best single slot NVIDIA card is, and whether there are any single-slot green edition cards out there. The card would be used for dedicated PhysX duties.

Thanks in advance!

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    Currently the fastest single slot card from Nvidia is GTX 295
  2. I meant a single-slot cooler card, probably should've added that sooner. Thanks for the answer though. :p
  3. 9800gt with the vanilla/stock/uber-noisy cooler. pretty hot, too.

    there was a time when an 8600gt ddr3 was suppose to do anything an ageia card was suppose to do as a physX card. i dunno about you but the best single slot nvidia card for that matter is a little overkill.

    look into a 9500gt-ddr3 instead.

    The best single slot Nvidia card is the Galaxy GeForce GTX 260+ Razor Edition :

    it does run a bit warm though....
  5. Heat shouldn't be that much of an issue, I have two big 120mm fans pushing air straight at the GPUs. :)

    Thanks for those models you guys named, I have one further question though: Are there any single-slot cooler NVIDIA cards that are at least somewhat silent?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not really, if you want silent then you will need to swap the cooler for a fanless, not recommended since the fanless coolers will take up more than one slot...
