    Default A dedicated PhysX card.

    I am upgrading my bro's computer. He is taking my old gtx260. His 9800 gtx+ would be his dedicated PhysX card.

    I have read/heard that you can use another card to act as a dedicated PhysX card.

    So here is my question:

    Is there a benefit to this?

    Yeah I actually have a gtx 470 sc as my main graphic card and a 9800gtx as a decadited phsyx card. With games that support phsyx it is definitely worth it. I get much better frames with just letting the 9800gtx handle the phsyx.

    So if you have it laying around I would do it without a doubt. Good luck

    Have you tested a performance difference with PhysX games using just your 470 and then testing using both?

    Yep I tried it on Mafia 2 benchmark and a bunch of other phsyx games. I saw at least a 15 frame difference. That is also on my setup though your setup might be different though. They have benchmarks on other sites and everyone shows a frame increase for a dedicated phsyx card.

    I don't think Rift uses PhysX so added a dedicated card won't improve performance.

    I don't think he was asking for a performance gain in rift per say. I think he was looking for a overall performance gain in any game that supports phsyx.
