My System Specs

I remember reading a while back that you can plug in a dedicated NVidia card for Physx:

1st question: Anyone know how to do this and get it to work?

2nd question: What's the best card I can use for this. I'm running a MSI P67A-GD65/2500K with a HX620 PS. I'm not overclocking anything, so when everything is going at max I'm using ~300W. I have a Zotac 560 ti 448 but that will eat about 200W if I stick it in. So I'm looking to get a lower powered (6xx series) card to use for this. Any suggestions?

That 560Ti 448 shouldn't eat that much power. If all it's doing is processing PhysX applications, then it will never run at 100%.

Good Luck getting all the drivers to play nice together. Should be fun!
