If you've been looking into getting a dedicated PhysX card, this might be the time to act. Price is $37.99, and there's a $20 MIR on top of that. Even without the rebate, that's still a good price. Note that the price is valid for today only.

I don't know if an 8600GT would be enough for Physx. It only has 32 Shader Processors.

If you have a 9800GTX or better you might lose performance by moving the Physx processing over to something that doesn't have enough power to keep up.

A 9600GT is probably the minimum that you'd want to use for dedicated Physx, with an 8800GT\9800GT being even better.

Makes for a great spare test card or perhaps for a HTPC?

Definitely.

Its not fast (at all) but its significantly better than any integrated video.

Its already sold out though.

Sold out... just as well, the last PNY product i ever bought was a ti4400 that has a ti4600 core that was clocked at lower speeds.
