It also tends to overclock quite well so the advantage will be more significant if you do so. http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_470... http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GeForce_GTX_470... m 0 l Emperus May 1, 2010 11:18:07 PM Its not worth it..

IF you are asking if you should specifically buy a 9400GT for physx then no, I wouldn't bother. m 0 l welliam May 1, 2010 11:34:56 PM not the power,I have enough I just asking because I have a problem with noise , 2 cards will generate more noise so is it worth it to have 470 + 9400 for physx ? or one is enough ? any charts about this ? m 0 l Emperus May 1, 2010 11:52:35 PM The 470 will provide enough noise to make the 9400GT sound non existing.. That means having both of them or just the 470 alone, noise wise its not gonna make any difference.. m 0 l Best solution mindless728 May 1, 2010 11:57:48 PM unless you play a few of the games on this list, don't worry about the 9400GT won't really help much in the PhysX heavy games TBH, it might actually be slower than using the GTX470 for graphics and PhysX Share welliam May 2, 2010 1:52:22 AM Best answer selected by mdk4ever. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
