I thought SSD's had no impact for gaming. I know games etc. will load faster,but how does it increase,or enhance physx or frame rates?

It doesn't, but it was the next piece in the puzzle so with my (now corrected) frame rate issue and everyone's suggestion's I pulled the trigger on it.

Forcing a video card to render 3D and PhysX in the same time is not the optimal setup. You would need an additional nvidia card and set it up in Nvidia Control panel for the second card to do the PhysX acceleration alone. I heard a 9800GT should do the job but you could also go with something more modern like a GT430. So look for a used nvidia series 8000 or 9000 in the high end and you should be ok.

Extract PHYSX Library DLL from the latest PHYSX installer and copy the Over the DLL's in ur borderlands install folder I did this to fix most of my physx slowdown but steam will overwrite the updated physx dll files eventually when it checks for updates
