Good Dedicated Physx Card?
I recently purchased a GTX 560 and was wondering if my old card would be a good dedicated card or not? 9500 GT 512mb ddr3 128-bit card. If it's not what would you suggest for an inexpensive good dedicated Physx card that wouldn't cause a bottleneck? Btw this is the motherboard I'm using GA-870a-UD3 (rev 2.1). Including photo. I know it fits but I am unsure if this will cause lag etc...here's some extra info so you don't have to go digging.

1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x16 (PCIEX16)
1 x PCI Express x16 slot, running at x4 (PCIEX4) (Note 2)
2 x PCI Express x1 slots (The PCIEX1_1 and PCIEX1_2 slots share bandwidth with the PCIEX4 slot.) (Note 2)
(All PCI Express slots conform to the PCI Express 2.0 standard.)
3 x PCI slots

(Note 2) The PCIEX1_1 and PCIEX1_2 slots share bandwidth with the PCIEX4 slot. When PCIEX4 slot is populated with a x4 card, the PCIEX1_1 and PCIEX1_2 slots become unavailable.

So good no good? What card should I invest in if I should? I am getting Batman Arkham City and would love to play 1080P with Physx. I'm running a Phenom II 6x 1055T and 6GB DDR3 1333mhz

Thanks!

The recommended graphics card for batman arkham city with all settings and physX enabled is the GeForce GTX 560. Nvidia were even running the game on an 8800GT. I can't remember what screen / resolution they played the game?.

I've got a question, will one GTX 590 be able to run Physx on full? because it recommends a GTX 570 + a dedicated GTX 460 or better.

[/quote]The PhysX engine in Batman Arkham City scales so selecting max PhysX doesn't necessarily get you max PhysX. There aren't enough games out which use PhysX so heavily that a dedicated PhysX card is even really worth it. The PhysX requirements for max PhysX on Arkham City is 570(vid) and 460(PhysX.) You're throwing money away buying one since you'd really be better off just to SLI.

In 2D you'll be fine if you disable SLI. The DX11 bugs will still be rough on a single 590, but you'll be fine.
