And to add to that, a PhysX card is only good for games that can use it. Do you have any games that it would even work with, and figured out to make it work on your AMD platform. I think there is a driver hack to do it though.
You might want to visit the Nvidia web site to see if you can mix and max AMD and Nvidia. I know the Nvidia web site has a registry hack called "coolbits" for cards that don't have the same spec's to be used in sli and that does work because I tried it with two Evga cards. Just type in coolbits in the search box and see what comes up about what you want to do. You might end up just getting another AMD card and doing crossfire.
i actually just bought a lycosa/deatheradder combo. and i also remembered that i have my old 9600GT sitting in an anti-static bag 5 feet from my PC. do you think it is worth it to install and configure the system using the instructions outlined here:
i have 2 games that i am pretty sure run Physx, mass effect and just cause 2. i've read that games that do use physics have large improvements when a dedicated card is used.
Mass Effects don't benefit from hardware PhysX, AFAIK. Just Cause 2 (great game, btw) should, and since it's quite consumptive, dedicated PhysX should lighten the load on the CPU. Also, get Mafia 2... it uses PhysX and is a great game
thanks i am thinking that since it won't cost me anything that i am going to try using the 9600GT as a dedicated physics card. also, i have a 120GB agility 3 SSD i just didn't post it in OP because it wasn't relevant to graphics info!
