Physx setup help?

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?

  1. I think GT210 will be like little pony helping out 2 horses to pull wagon, ie bad idea
    *looks around for that article to link
  2. *my little pony my little pony aahh ahhh ahhh ahhh ahhh* wait.. what?

    here's one article on this, but I think there was a newer one. can't find it.

    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?
  3. 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"
  4. simple: massive minecraft physx with several thousand pieces of TNT
  5. Minecraft doesn't support PhysX.

  6. 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.
