The Best $500 NVIDIA PhysX Setup - Our Setups

$500 and a love for PhysX? - Which option is the better way to go; a single GTX 480, or a GTX 470 with a dedicated GTX 260 picked up second hand?

Our Setups

 

Setting up a dedicated PhysX card on an NVIDIA system is a breeze; all we have to do is install both cards and run the latest NVIDIA drivers. Considering a GTX 480 goes for $499 and a GTX 470 new is $349 and a second hand GTX 265 will set you back around $150, we wonder what's the better option for people who love PhysX?

 

Below you can see our three GPU Screenshots.

We've got our GTX 480 by itself all ready to do everything; PhysX and its normal rendering tasks.

Here we've got a GTX 470 doing all the rendering stuff, while we have a GTX 260 doing the PhysX work.
