That's a smoking deal.

You could always just try it out. Play some Physx games, take advantage of the performance improvement, and then take the card out if you aren't using it any more. If you end up not needing it at all, sell it for a profit. That's what I did with my 9600GT. Its currently going into a system I'm building for a friend.
That's kind of how i tried justifying it to myself lol.

I actually use alot more CUDA enabled programs than just physx so it definetly does have some benefit there... it's just tough dropping $100 on a video card that I can't use in sli... even if I had an sli board
