257.21 WHQL Physx?

Just upgraded to the latest nvdia drivers yesterday. I notice I now have the option in my control panel to choose what I want my physx to run on. (CPU or GPU)

Which one should I select for the best in game performance?

What I would do is download Fluidmark...it allows you to benchmark PhysX using both your CPU and your GPU in seperate tests so that you can see which one handles PhysX better. I'm thinking that, even with the i7, your probably going to want to use your GPU, but this test will tell you for sure.

You can get it here.
