What I am wondering is, would a GTX275 from EVGA improve physx simulation in an SLI system (two GTX460's with an AMD Phenom II X6 @ 3.7ghz on an Asus Sabertooth 990FX with 8GB of Ram - 1333mhz - and an 850w PSU from XFX.
Now, I know that in some cases having a physx card that has less CUDA cores then the main graphics cards can actually lower performance, so if this is one of those cases, what card would you recommend for dedicated physx in my system?
I don't think power consumption would be an issue as i bearly break 600w at the moment.

if you read the thread you would have seen he plays metro 2033 more than anything and other PhysX games.
Is he running quad SLI GTX 580s to even run Metro 2033 with Physx at playable frustrates and how much/long can one real play Metro an on rails single player game for theirs not much to the game really come on LOL.
Nobody can run Metro 2033 maxed ether with perfect framerates I played thru Metro on my GTX 275 and on a Radeon HD 5750 and whether Physx where on or off I could never see a deference. PS GTX 275 played Metro 2033 surprisingly well on DX9 maxed @ 1680x1050 Physx off.
sounds like you need a better set of GPU's...
GTX 275 and HD 5750 are/were MEH @ best anyways.
Well GTX 275 is same power as GTX 460 1GB so it is still alright and was a great GPU in 09/11 but is now getting a bit long in the tooth but still 40fps in BF3 maxed is not bad for GTX 275. I rather spend my money on other things than just my gaming rig like Camping, Hunting, House, Quading, Racing, Girl friend, Life, etc but I may invest in a good 78xx if and when they are available if price is right $200ish. Metro is a real stickler of a game I think it sucks but the graphics are some of if not the best even still to this day imo and it real is a great benchmarking game and that is why I bought it and use it for peace out man have a great day.
