I can't really confirm that the 8x pci-e was gimping performance but just to be on the cautious side i'm going to leave it out for now... 8600 GT is pretty underpowered anyway for some physx enabled games
I have never had any problems just running PhysX right off my GTX285 that I am using to game on The card is a beast!
