The only "fail boat" is your post NP.

1. You can't see the water with the PhysX off. When you can't see the water from a water gun, this is usually considered "bad". It's equivalent to not seeing the laser from a laser gun, a pretty big deal.

2. The physics are how the water reacts to gravity and solid bodies it encounters to provide a more realistic gaming environment NP.

While ATi owners might think it's acceptable to not see the water from a water gun, or have it just disappear on contact, those of us using NVIDIA cards with PhysX like having more immersive, realistic environments.
