My System Specs

Dunno about now, but I recall reading a few days ago that a dedicated PhysX card is pretty useless if your GPU ain't powerful enough. I was looking to use my 9600GT as a PhysX and Folding card along with my GTX 460, but it appears that I would actually get a performance decrease if I used the 9600GT for PhysX.
