Not worth it to you maybe, but how about not making the decision for the rest of us? The $75 -$125 an additional GPU for PhysX might cost is spit in the ocean of my hobby expenses every year.
A lot of people can just use an old NVIDIA card they still have. For the ones who can't, I'd note a 3 year old 8800GT is still a more than adequate PhysX card. You can buy a Zotac 9800GT with lifetime warranty for $69.99 AMIR shipped at newegg- the "high cost" argument doesn't fly.
If it lasts you two years that's $35 bucks a year. That's less than the cost of a game.
