Hi everyone!
I'm setting up a new gaming machine (amd fx-8120, 16 gb Gskill sniper 1600 ram, ecd, asus sabertooth 990fx)
when seting up the graphics, I plan to use 2 Sparkle GTX 560's, and was wondering if i could use a GT 210 for Physx? also, how would I set that up?

A GT 210 is going to do more harm than good.
I'd say a dedicated PhysX card is a waste of money. How many PhysX games are there anyway?

From the article ^^^

"Looking at the graph, you can see very clearly that a card slower than a GeForce GT 240 or 9600 GT makes little sense, even if it should be able to support PhysX in theory"

Forget the 210 for dedicated PhysX. As indicated, it is not good as a dedicated card, your two 560's can handle PhysX just fine, and most importantly, you are likely not playing any PhysX games (think Batman: Arkham Asylum/City, Metro 2033, Mafia 2, Unreal Tournament 3, and a few other less popular games).

Physics, as in Minecraft, is not the same as Nvidia's PhysX.
