Default 460 for a Physx card ????

What do you guys think ? I have 2 WC EVGA GTX 275's in sli and I was wondering if these would be a good choice for deticated Physx . I ordered 3 Dell 24" U2410 ultrasharp monitors today.

I was thinking of getting a couple of 480's later on this summer but picking up a 460 now just for Physx the 275's are water cooled and actually work quite well no problems with metro bbbc2 or any others . I also thought about setting up a folding rig with this current setup when I start building my 980x setup

I would just keep one of your GTX275s when you upgrade. A GTX460 would be overkill just for PhysX, especially considering the minor difference it makes.

So you think that if I keep my current 920 system for folding that one 275 would be ok ? , I was also considering a 250 for Physx

If you get a pair of GTX480s, you'll be able to fold on those as well. Those two cards, the GTX275, and the 920 combined will produce quite a lot of points.

Thats what I was thinking too , I will loose too much money if I try to sell my 920 rig so I thought that I would put it to good use folding. my new rig will be fully watercooled as well but I,m not sure what vid card to get for Physx
