So no need for a dedicated card for Physx? :D

Hey SkyMTL,

Have you tried other cards for Physx?

Is there any benefit from going from an 8800, to GT240, GTX260 etc?

I decided to spend more money, GTX460 in SLI, and an older GPU for Physx only :D

ahh that can be your next benchmarking article. :)

"Benefits of various cards for Physx"

It would be nice if we could find a quiet/passive older card that doesn't require external power that would also help with Physx :)

Game worked for about 20 minutes, now when I try to continue some stripes appear on my screen and the whole pc freezes. I guess my video card is too old? (7900GS) ...

Beat the game last weekend. Great game but I don't like the ending at all.

As far as physx this game still doesn't push physx that hard so I think you wont see much of an improvement with a higher card if at all.
