Hello everyone,

So has anyone done any benchmarking on using an old graphics cards as a dedicated Physx card?

I was thinking about using my super old 8800gts 640mb.

Will it help on games like metro2033 or last light?..I heard it can help with arkham asylum.

My system specs are below:

I7-3960x
Asus Sabertooth x79
16gb DDR3 1600
Nvidia GTX 590

Thanks,

Ya I ran a 9600GT for a while it helped... but just sucked up allot of power 99% of the time when not playing physx games sooo eh.

There was just a video on this posted in another thread, I can't find it again though. It was on a youtube. Basically if the card is too old, it slows it down more than letting 1 card do the physx and graphics than using some old card only for the physx.
