Yes that would be a perfect card for it too. Only... are you playing PhysX games? There's only 12 or 13 of them.

Do you even have any games that make use of Physx?

Very few do, for example, Batman: Arkham Asylum and Mirror's Edge do, but very very little other games do. So if you're not gaming on any games that specifically make use of Physx, having that other 250 in there is just a waste.

If you insist on using a card for games that do in fact use Physx, then your 250 would be just fine.

As long as you have the PSU for it and PhysX games to play go for it.

If you want to use it for that it will be fine. If you really don't have any games that require it then it would just be in there as added heat and a power draw.
If you are going to use it then you but it in a spare slot connect the power to it and fire the system up go in to the display controls and select it as Physx. More details on this can be found at Nvidia if you wish .

i agree, if u arent gonna play a game that supports physx, than theres no point in putting it in ur system, as it will be a useless piece of hardware generating more heat for nothing and not be utilize correctly
