I'm planning to upgrade my desktop soon and my budget for a graphics card leads me to either an ATI HD5570 or GeForce GT430. Both are at 1GB, DDR3 and a very slight difference in price.
I'm definitely gonna use this for some gaming and upon reading some threads ATI 5570 seems the common choice. However, nVidia seems to have a monopoly on PhysX (or so I heard) as well as game tie-ups so I'm quite bugged which to choose. Should I go for "hardware-wise" hence the ATI or is PhysX worth having on my system?
I'm also planning to replace the mobo so I'd appreciate if you also suggest between MSI 760GM-P33 and Asus M4N68T-M LE V2 along with the graphics card choice. Will I gain anything if I pair an ATI with an AMD chipset, GeForce with nForce chipset and vice versa?
Hope you can give me some insights on these questions, I'd really appreciate it. TIA guys!
