You are aware that they put an on/off PhysX switch into the control panel for a reason. You can turn it off if you'd rather use your GPU only for rendering.

PhysX is great if you prefer single GPU cards, because you dont need to sell or give away your old GPU, you can use it as your dedicated PhysX card, at least thats what I will use my 8800GTX once I upgrade.

And this has nothing to do with nvidia or ati as nvidia can gain the performance boost of dx10.1 when their dx11 cards will come out.
It's useless because in a few months it will be obsolete thanks to DX11. IMO Nvidia did absolutely the right thing to fully focus on DX11,PhysX,CUDA,GPGPU R&D instead of "wasting" resources on DX10.1.
