    Default Running old card for Physx?

    hey everyone,
    I recently picked up a cheap GTX 260 very cheap (60) which has improves gaming performance significantly.
    I now have a 8800 GTS that is just lying around as i know ill get nothing for selling it, so id had reccomended to me to run it as a Physx card.
    My question is will the performance be worth it for the extra heat and noise if any or do hardly any games use physx anyway?
    Also im not sure i have another pci-e power cable yet ill have to check.

    EDIT: forgot to add my monitor resolution is only 1680x1050 and the gtx 260 has 800+mb of mem too
