I've got a GT 240 as my current graphics card, and I'm thinking of upgrading to a 660Ti or a 670. I'd like to have the added bonus of Physx in games like Borderlands 2 and Batman AC without bogging down the main GPU. Would the GT 240 work fine for just running Physx calculations?
On a side note: Does anyone think that an i3 2120T would bottleneck a 670?

Can you use the 240 as a dedicated Physx card? Yes.....but with a 660Ti or 670 you would probably slow the system down actually.
This is hard to gauge with this old review, but to me it clearly indicates that the 240 is not a good enough compliment for a 660 Ti/670.
There's also this as an added clue:

Alright, so it seems that using the GT 240 for Physx would bottleneck the *** out of the 670. Makes sense. I suppose my best bet would be running two 670s in SLI and having them work in tandem for Physx? Eh. Even so, not like I have that kind of money. :P
Yeah you don't need a card as a dedicated Physx card i don't and do just fine if you feel the need for one a GTX 460/560 would be a good choice but why waste your money
