Hello,
I just upgraded my PC and replaced my GTX 260 with a GTX 660. My question- is there anything I can use my old 260 for? I do some video recording and streaming and that is the driver behind getting the upgrades, but can I still use the 260 to advance the cause?

Thanks for any advise.

I might be able to take it off your hands, PM me if you want to sell it.

Dedicate it as a Physx card..... Not sure what else it would really be good for.

1) sell it if you can.
2) just keep it as collector item
3) as for dedicated PhysX i think it is better to let GTX660 alone to handle that. GTX260 use more electricity than GTX660 and to limit it's function solely for PhysX calculation (which is hardly any title will use it) i don't think it's worth it

Thanks you all for the quick replies. I thought this would be the case but I was looking for some confirmation.

Thanks again.

Keep it one day down the road your 660 might die and you can pull the old 260 out and some nostalgia
