    Default Do I need and which graphic card for PhysX

    I already have two GTX 780 in SLI. Do I need another graphic card for PhysX or not. What will be the benefit of having an dedicated card for PhysX and which model you can suggest me.
    Thanks.

    I did, but not for the only purpose of physX, I am running 3 displays, but I only game on 1. So what I did was hook my main (middle display to the SLI GTX670s) then hooked the 2nd and 3rd displays to the GTX650 Ti boost. This was I gave my main display FULL use of the GTX670 SLI for gaming. I don't game on 3 monitors, so I didn't use the surround feature. Tho I have the option to with a simple switch of the cables.

    But since my 2nd and 3rd display if for web browsing and keeping my temp monitor apps open while gaming and/or chats from team speak and other apps I have going on. Since that doesn't require allot of resource, I dedicated it as a physX card.

    But for 1 display, you don't need to do what I did.

    And depending on your CPU, you may want to switch to that. I think Nvidia lets you do that. No need to hog the GPU, CPU does it fine too (though physx adds nothing worthwhile really)

    A friend would give me one Zotac GTX 650Ti 2GB. I can take advantage and use it for PhysX.

    Most games don't let you increase the PhysX on CPU although if you go through the configs you can usually change it manually. As PhysX actually adds quite a bit, google Metro Last Light PhysX Comparison.
