Hello, my setup is in my signature and I am curious if there would be any increase in performance if I were to put a dedicated phys-X card in with games like crysis, Metro 2033, and so on. Also with my motherboard would that work? From what I have read I am unable to use a different series ATI card with my 5800 series like for instance a 4650 with it or 4850 but if I am not able to do that then how am I able to use a phys-X card with it when it's not even the same maker.

On a side note : yes many people will say that I should have not gotten my 5830 and should have saved up an extra 100$ and got the 5850 but I actually got mine for 200$ and it came with mw2 and I overclock it to 975/1300 and it runs pretty good.

No it will not, Only select motherboard's support cross-chipset graphics cards, and those few won't allow PhysX.

Was the dedicated PhysX chip used on those any of the chips you want to use?

I don't remember where I read that from but I want to find out if it would work out, I saw a gt 240 on newegg for like 40$ after rebates and it would look pretty nice in my case under my 5830 lol.. and if it would help in metro that would be great because my video card doesn't do that great in metro unless I overclock it, then I can run highest settings with dx11 except AA and Depth of field and get decent fps.

I am tempted to get an nvidia card but only because a lot of new games are programmed to work better with them but I really like what ati has to offer, using 3 monitors is nice.

Are you 100% sure that I can not use a physx card on my motherboard? That's screwed up, I have seen a ton of cheap motherboards that can use both. I have 4 pci-e slots I would think I could use a nvidia card with my ati card just for physx, what i7 9xx mobo's support physx?

It's not the motherboard that supports PhysX it's the Nvidia graphics card that you're going to need, along with the hacked drivers.

What is the best value nvidia card I can get for the cheapest / best performance? and how do I get hacked drivers?

I didn't know you had to hack things to get it working, I thought it was meant to be.

The cheapest card you can use as a PhysX card is an 8600GT and the reason for having to use hacked drivers is due to ATi continually talking down PhysX and insisting that it's not wanted by users of ATi cards.

I thought that it was nvidia that was against it.

What would the difference be between the 8600 vs like the gt240? Would there be an fps difference in physx games?

Here's an article from two years ago that helped set the scene.

No idea, but I would have thought the performance would be about the same between the two.
