Hi Folks

I Have Sapphire HD5850 CF, and i need a physx card.

I've decided on GT240.

The question is : to get the DDR3 or the DDR5 ?? does the memory type has any impact on physx usage ?

thanks everyone.

DDR3 -> DDR5 is a noticeable difference, and would be worth it. Keep in mind for PhysX you can use lower-end cards such as an 8800 or a 9600 series.

So the difference would be noticeable in PhysX ??

I have A 8800GTS G92, but I Need something with a small power usage, to use besides my 2 HD5850.

thanks you for replying, much appreciated.

Ah..small the cast a 9600GT ECO or a GT240 would indeed be your best bet.
