You can still buy them used, not new anymore as they aren't produced. GeForce cards perform better though iirc.

I got one. I can't justify saying better other than 'it sounds like a good idea if a 8600/8800 is doing it'.

Got no figures to confirm it.

Probably a decent ati companion tho, using the supplied drivers or pre nvidia. U can get them cheap ~£30 if u look hard enough, nothing like the £120+ they rrpd at.

well i have a 4890 (1Ghz core/990mem) so that should hold out,nooo paying £120 would be abit steep,£30 is about right.

how much would you be looking for Kempz,and were could i get the pre nvid drivers,not after one just yet still waitin for my studen loans

rast when you say you have one do you mean you use it or you just have one lol

Don't use it atm m8, I did do a test of using it with a gtx280 and found little point.

I do honestly think, even tho I think I'm pished, that physx processing doesn't take all that much.

Would probably recommend trying with ati tho, as I said. Think I got the same one Kemp is offering.

Believe mine is a BFG one in a triangular box.

Been looking to see if some "hack" type people have been doing anything with them.
