If you really want a dedicated physx card you should sell that GTX 460 and buy a GTX 650 with the money as it uses a lot less power and I mean a lot less power according to graphs I'm looking at in comparison to that 460.


Yea I'm sure it does. If I sell the 460 though I'm not going to buy a replacement. This is a "use it because it's staring me in the face" sort of thing.

It would be fine, with room to spare. You are right that the TP-650 is a good unit, it still is even though it's no longer really sold.


Ah, I was hoping you would respond. You are the one who recommended this unit 2+ years ago lol.

I'm surprised anyone remembers this stuff, I sure don't :) I'm glad the unit is serving you well.

Pretty sure you'll actually lose performance because there's quite a gap between those two cards.

Nah, if it was enough, he'd be cutting it real close.

He's using the 460 for PhysX, not SLI.

I'm aware, you can't sli two nvidia cards that aren't the same number.

Then why would you think it would make things run worse when the 460 would be lessening the load for the other GPU?

I may end up giving it to a buddy who has wanted to get into pc gaming for awhile... He has some prebuilt junk from Bestbuy but it's decent. I'm thinking a PSU upgrade needs to happen immediately. Otherwise I think it's got a sandybridge i3 and 4 GB ram so he should be able to game on mid-high settings @ 1600x900...
