yea i admit, its easy to own all physx games
what i have read, Borderlands 2, Mars, Metro Last Light and Aliens Colonial Marines will feature Hardware PhysX ! So yea at least some AAA titles!

Regarding Cryostasis: hahahah! That game drives me nuts man.. i never ran that game lag free in my life still not today, the Benchmark runs perfect, the game itself laggs like always, bad programming id say, its playable but feels like 25fps sometimes! lol!

And i never had any PhysX related BSOD, im using 295.73 Drivers + 9.11.062 PhysX SS and runs perfect...

Perhaps when the time comes i will put back that GT520 or perhaps i will get a GT620 if that ever arrives. I'm really looking @ power consumption since the card will just draw power for nothing most of the time. The 520 is really power saving, just 25W on max.

Cryostasis, wasn't that game with the annoying dreams where you have to follow some dogs? Really hated it. Good for testing Physx.

Yes Cryostasis is that game! I really enjoy it, its deep and has a good story + atmosphere, you just need to get into it!

I have put back that GT520. The max 25W it is consuming in my case isn't really a problem and i just love the Physx maps in UT3 (especially Tornado). The only thing that bogs my mind is that AFAIK hybrid setups won't work with Win 8, for now. The few times i've tried, i couldn't get the 2 drivers to install. I really hope hybrids will still be possible in the future.

Btw, about the GT620? I won't be bothering with that, since it's a rebrand of the 520. The only interesting card would be the GT640.

Perhaps i will give Cryostasis a go again, if Guild Wars would let me.

So either i try to "open" (looking at my tiny saw) the slot for a longer pci-e card or i buy a new mobo! But then i found this: http://www.amazon.com/Zotac-GeForce-...9315800&sr=8-4

Ok so i thought before asking anbody and/or looking for some threads, i just order the card and try it myself, easy! 14days is enough for testing (i needed 30mins, from unpacking to see the physx arrow in gpu-z, i had a physx hybrid system before, so it was nothing).

What can i say, it runs really really well! here are some numbers:

Batman AC ALL Maxed 1080p:

Min 15
Max 60 (vsync)
Avg 35

Batman AA ALL Maxed 1080p:

Min 34
Max 180
Avg 80

I get about 80% GT520 GPU Usage! Nice!

Tested also Metro, Sacred 2 and runs really great i never thought a GT520 on PCIE1x 2.0 would make it but i was clearly wrong!

So for everybody with the same problem, go ahead! Just try it yourself, i can def. say it works and everygame i tested been playable at least with absolute maximum physx + ingame settings.

If you need more Information let me know, no Problem. Main reason for this threat is that Pcie-1x 2.0 does work sufficient for PhysX dedicated cards.

Have great day guru's!
I want a GT520 pci-e x1 so badly but can't find one in my country. Can't order it from US, the shipping price + gpu price is 100+ USD
