Good choice. Yes the GTX295 does have Physx support the 10,000 dollar ? is do the dedicated cards really make a real world difference right now vs say what you get out of the single better cards like a gtx285/295 etc.

I personally used an 8600GTS I had lying around with my prior card a GTX280, and in synthetic becnhes like Vantage it scored worse with the use of a dedicated card in this case an 8600gts vs the stand alone GTX280.

Again we dont really have enough software to really test things out other than a few tech demos.

I have not tried the 8600GTS along side the GTX295 because I dont feel the benefit relative to the ordeal I had using the 8600GTS both from a power consumption stand point, and the BSOD i witnessed.
