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?

-Ds
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!
