    Default GTS 250 for PhysX

    I have this old GTS 250 collecting dust and just got Borderlands 2. I thought that maybe I could use the GTS 250 for PhysX? I was wondering.. if I put the GTS 250 card in an x4 slot, would it hinder performance at all?

    Not if you dedicate it to PhysX processing in the NVIDIA Control Panel.

    Not sure how well that card will handle PhysX though.

    Do not know is this card could effectively handle today's PhysX, and if you gonna see some improvements over your GTX 580, but you can try.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    It doesn't hurt to try. Run benchmarks using the GTS-250, and the GTX-580 and see how the system performs with each. Keep the best solution.
