hey, i have a spare Galaxy GT430 1GB lying around and i was wondering if i could use it as a dedicated physX for when playing BF3. I have a Evga GTX560 2gb SC in my primary PCIE slot. Would i get any gain in FPS? even a little would help, 5?

thanks for the help ahead of time

BF3 does not use PhysX. The game uses its own physics.

there isnt a point of using a physx card even if the game supports it. physx cards can somethimes downgrade perfromance if they bottleneck the main card

bf3 doesnt even have physx it barely even has its own physics engine so i wouldnt do that.

In some cases this can be true.
