does GeForce 9400 GT support Nvidia Physx?

Today I founded a Point Of View 9400 GT 1GB DDR2.

Does this card supports Physx technology? can i use it as a dedicated Physx card?

From what I understand, as long as your mobo supports it you should be able to. You can read what Nvidia says about it for your specific card.

i have a problem: my 9400 GT won't install on my pc (runtime error 43). Nvidia control panel cannot see it.

My main GPU is a GTX 690.

How can I install the 9400 GT as Physx dedicated card?

The 9400 series card is not supported for physx...did you check the second link out and scroll through the pages. Page 3 clearly shows that it's not supported.

Any of the listed cards will work. It just depends on how much you want to spend. Honestly, I think most modern GPU's has this built into them now, on the Nvidia cards. But I'm not 100% sure. You could do some research on the subject and report back with your findings.

They do.

Pretty sure that even if you get either of those cards you listed to work (and the G210 won't, and is actually slower than Intel's current HD graphics by a fair margin), they would likely slow down performance more than helping as they are not only old but low end cards. You GTX 690 should be more than enough for any Physx enabled games.
