I am feeling too lazy to google it (though energetic enough to respond, hah), but I have read on numerous occassions that PhysX runs just fine on x1 slots, with only a very small performance difference from x16, which could be chalked up to normal variance (like 1-2%).
I "think" itll be okay I do have my sata connections a few small caps right there but they appear to be out of the way enough to fit. Yeah I am positive you can do it its just a matter of "is it worth it." I just got a 5850 so part of me feels bad for not having any purpose for my 260. Maybe its time to just let it go (sniffle)
Are there any native 1x cards that you think could handle physxs? I know its a gimic but if its really cheap its still sorta cool.
Also does anyone know about a ribbon connector that could do this? like a 1x to 16 x on a ribbon so I dont have to worry about space?
Yeah I apologize if my question was misleading....
This is very possible and I know it can be done, I simply would like to know would cutting my mobo slot be worth the trouble of getting phyxs and would the 260 be able to handle the physx processing on such low bandwidth?
Also if anyone can think of a better solution (such as a x1 native card that would work or a ribbon adapter) please let me know
