  1. I don't think a dedicated Physx card is worth it. There's about 4 games where it makes a worthwhile difference imo.
  2. A GT240 is all you need for PhysX, In your case, if you want to play those PhysX enabled games, you can consider getting one for $60, but honestly dual GTX460s are perfectly fine.

    Just use the 460's and forget about the dedicated physX card, the 460's don't need an extra GPU for physX. If you had a single ATI card or a single 460 then that would be another story.
  4. thanks a lot guys! that extra money i don't have to spend now... if only i could have the $$ in hand when evga has the 460s in stock now lol
