hello,
could anyone tell me what is the best single slot air cooled nvidia card?i know this q. has been asked many times but i need an updated answer...
the evga gtx 580 ftw hc2 is probably the fastest single slot card but its not aircooled....i cant install the fittings on this card as literally there isnt any space....
i cant find the gtx 460 razor is discontinued on newegg....can't find the slim edition gtx 580 either....
i need the nvidia card for physx with 4x radeon 7970 cards....
i know i can use a really slow card for physx but i dont want to use such weak cards...plz help

physx and radeons are not friends.they may work but not good enough.a gt430 is more than enough for physx.

a gt 430 is more than enough?!,,,i heard people saying if you use a high end gtx card..you need to use a not so high end gtx card for physx....is it the same thing with hybrid physx?if so than would the gt 430 the best buy??i really dont want my fps to drop in physx scenes

^hardly a few games support physx,the difference is noticeable only in screenshots.i would say don't waste your time arranging physx with radeons,go enjoy your quadfire monster setup.
