I wish they would make PhysX avail to anyone that just owns one of their cards and wants to use PhysX.

You can get the GTX285's for about $300 each new if you know where to look.
LOL who in their right mind would buy 2x GTX285 and be limited with DX10? when they can buy a future proof DX11 graphics card with performance >= 2x GTX285 and cheaper then 2x GTX285?

2x Nvidia GTX285 costs 560 (280 each)
1x ATi 5970 costs 530
