Default 9500 as a physx card

Tigerdirect has a 512mb 9500 on sale for $40... What do y'all think? should I do it? I've heard it will increase framerates pretty dramatically, and well if not then I'll just use it to drive extra monitors.

Here's a link: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...&sku=M452-9502

Can anybody assure me this works? I have heard it does, but just want to be sure.

I am using the 9500 GT Geforce about to switch to 4870 or maybe 260 soon. I say upgrade for $40. I have been dual screening with it and I say I am very satisfied. A card that cheap will be a work horse for WoW on high at 55 fps or.

Get it unless you want something to be a gamekiller.

Thats all my opinion though.

I already have a 4870 x2 as my main card. I want it for dedicated physX.

Does anyone know much about this? google doesnt give me much.

Having an dedicated physx card is pretty worthless IMO unless you are using to play physx supported games.

well, a lot of games are physX supported nowadays, and I've seen some really cool demonstrations of it.

Yeah, batman is the only physx game I play, so I don't think it's worth the extra money just to get the extra performance. My computer can already run it on high with no AA.
