Ok folks I need help. Never set up a dedicated physx card b4.
I'll be trying it on my daughter's system. Specs are: 980x ES base clock 2.4 oced to 3.07.
Ultra chiltec cooler, Asus P6X58D-E mobo, 6gbs of OCZ 1333 ram, Kingston Now SSD for OS.
Main card is an EVGA GTX 570. We have a GT 520 to use for physx.
I've tried to find help online and even the Nvidia site doesn't have the info I need. Waiting for a response from
I figured the experts on here could help me a little quicker. Simply need a site that explains how to set it up.
Thanx in advance!!!
Edit: Just got a reply from Nvidia Support. WOW, that was quick....
I could still use any helpful info, just in case.
Wow, Do I feel f#%^#g stupid.
What a difference. Had to do it twice, as it picked up the hardware but wouldn't recognize it????
Pulled, re-installed, recognized on 2nd installation??? wtf. At least it's working!
Mods plz delete this silly thread.
I think a GT520 is likely too slow to pull off PhysX. I am willing to bet your framerate will actually be lower than w/ just the GTX570 alone.
I am not able to get my GTX680s to POST so I can't tell you exactly where in the Nvidia control panel the PhsyX options are. But it should give you a choice on which card you want to to the PhsyX processing on.
Thanks LF. Going to run #D Mark 11 and see.
Hope you get those 680s running cherry. Shouldn't take you too long with your knowledge.
Yea a lot of users have found that running a separate physx card isn't all that beneficial. A single 570 will most likely do better than the 570/520 combo. However its still a cool idea and let us know how it works both ways if possible?:thumb:
Well I ran 3D and got the same results with the 520 in place and out.
I had to run it using an old monitor as the tvs were occupied. Not sure how much dif that would make, as the old monitor is a mere 1280x1024.:blarg:
Thought I got rid of that piece of c$@p. Guess it came in handy after all. Time to hunt down a decent monitor.
I did continually receive error messages with both scenarios so I have to contact Furmark.
That should be interesting.:whistle:
Maybe dumb question but since I have a red team card (7950) is it possible to still use an nvidia card for physx Thanks!
Possible yes.. Have a search here there is a few threads about it I believe.
Ok folks. I like the idea of physx, and the 520 just isn't cutting it just like Lowfat mentioned it would.:sad:
Though I have a 570 in that pc for the main card, what would you recommend for a physx card?:whistle:
There's a 450ti available, would that be good enough?:blarg:
Even an old 9800gt should cut the mustard
