Is it easy to ship it to Australia? I've never shipped anything there
I can't wait to get out of college this May and get a job...I desire these things greatly.
Why would you do that when every nvidia card from the GTX 400 series onward has built in physx? Thats just a waste
Your selling the cards you just got???
Yes they support it, but having an extra card handle all the PhysX calculations free your other cards to use all their power exclusively for rendering graphics.
I understand though that a 580 is overkill for PhysX processing, I might just not use it just to reduce my case's temp
No, hes not.
Having another card at all beyond a series 400 card is a waste as the card itself is powerful enough to handle both and wont bog anything down.
Probably going to play with both cards and then most likely keep one and return/resell the other. I guess if somebody's super duper really interested, I would part with one (but not so I take a loss).
Single card all stock netted me P7670 default on 3DM11. Going to toss the second one in probably sometime tomorrow midst the Tera Online NA CBT4 and see how she likes it.
:/ I don't know haha. I'd imagine it would be pretty pricey tbh.
I can imagine, I might end up selling a 580 locally
Thanks for the input, I know this is probably not the right thread to discuss this, and there really aren't that many games that take advantage of PhysX, but for the ones that do, it certainly helps to have a dedicated card to take away the burden from your rendering cards, check this article for reference.
Anyways, I'm probably more concerned about the thermal implications of keeping a third card in my case than about performance gains from pure PhysX acceleration, when I went 3-way SLI with my current cards, the top card's temp went up by about 2 to 3 degrees.
Thank you for your opinion
And every single one of those cards that are in those charts dont have the ability to do Physx themselves while the series 400 cards on up do. So that article is invalid.
New addition need to get that paint chip sorted as well.
And yes, I realized that I forgot the SLi bridge
NIce!, just put in a order for a copper plexi block for mine.
A Silverstone PS-07B build for a friend
Case fits this 160mm tower cooler with no problem
Strange, looks like you got that case standing upside down there Norton!
I had a little trouble wiring it up and putting the SATA's in the right ports... kept forgetting to hold the manual upside down
Nah Norton just has different gravity there.
Well, Norton will be excited to hear that I shipped his Dominators upside down!
I built an Australian/American model- I down-undered the board in the case
You mean I have a set of "srotanimoD" coming!
Did you put them backwards too?
He thinks they're in Buffalo, NY right now...but really.....
it's the crazy Intel BTX form factor works well if there is some form of separation between the top and bottom halves of the case otherwise you just end up with hotter than norm graphics cards ...... give the real BTX that silverstone uses in their RV02 FT02 type cases that atleast works very well to keep heat moving up and away from components
I will someday build a "crazy Intel" rig!
This case runs real cool in this configuration. It has 2x120mm fans in the front and fully opened and vented in the rear which pushes any heat straight out through the back.
I ran it for over 2 weeks crunching for WCG 24/7 and it ran cool and quiet the whole time. Silverstone makes some nice cases don't they
*** EDIT it's not a BTX board just a mATX upside down ***
Or if your in Australia it's right side up.
