well if you already have the 8600GTS then you might as well use it rather than leave it floating about.... physx is demanding but it should be fine on the 8600GTS...

You should have gotten a GTX 260 Core 216 55nm

depends on the budget really, GTX 280 is faster but GTX 260 core 216 is better value for money....

eehh, i got it for $300 shipped...its the ASUS TOP one so it comes at 670mhz

i saw a used EVGA GTX280 for 270shipped but it was already registered, plus i missed out on it...at least i can register the ASUS and get 3 year warranty, since i probably won't have it for more then 3 years

8600GTS/9500GT and up are the best cards for physx.

the 55nm is more expensive then a gtx 280 on ncix. a gtx280 comes to 350 for a bfg or evga. the evga gtx 260 55nm core 216 is like 379$
