Mine got overheated in a way similar to yours, but mine died while I was cleaning out my PC, I was supposed to pull off an extra fan sitting next to the gfx and ppu, but instead I pulled the ppu connector instead, leaving it in a furnace 1 week...It was 1 week later...I was playing Warmonger Downtown Destruction..something had gone wrong...bcoz the game needs a ppu to play it, otherwise its not playable...next second...a smell was coming out of the case grills...opened it up....and to find the nearby plastics melted a bit that was around the shroud of the fan!Could you elaborate a bit on how your PPU died from overheating? They seem pretty rugged in that regard, mine had some cables get snagged which stopped the fan from spinning and it worked for over a week as the fan was locked in place until the fan eventually burnt itself up - but the card itself was never damaged.
At this point, with PhysX being ported to CUDA, if you have an nVidia 8 series card or better I'd honestly wait and see how that plays out. No one really knows at this point how PhysX is going to perform under CUDA on a Geforce card directly against a dedicated PPU, but it would save you some money and a PCI slot.
Beyond that there should be plenty of deals going for PPU's on the used market.
So it's from 2006, so what? Throwing that out there and arbitrarily using that fact to imply that its dated technology is pretty silly. 8800GTX and Core2Quad were also introduced that year; I suppose that is also now dated technology by your standards?For PPU It's may 2006 it came out it's june 2006 I got two.
So it's time to replace them to something Heavier in Physics.
Yes, they're porting the full PhysX API to Cuda. So it can do everything the PPU or the CPU could do under PhysX.I wonder if G8x or higher support GameplayPhysX to out of the box.
Yes it its. Lokin forward for HD4870(X2) and the 9900So it's from 2006, so what?

I would get a BFG you can pick them up for around 89.99 USD...Hi to all...cause my old PPU died out from overheating...my budget now is $350 AUD and can anyone recommend any good PPU's out there within or my budge above to me?
Any recommendations will be great! Thnx
