8600 gt viable as dedicated physx card?

I was cleaning out our storage closet and found my old pc with the aforementioned 8600 and was just curious. I'm using a 660ti right now, would it be worth it to even try using it as a physx card?

Depends on the game, but largely, no.

No it will slow everything down and even make your 660ti slightly worse

Getting a soundcard might increase your FPS more than a dedicated-physx card.

Really? I always thought dedicated sound cards weren't worth it unless you're an audiophile.
I'm not really needing a boost anyway, I'm fine with my system's performance right now. I was just curious since I have the old card laying around.
