8800ultra would be a overkill just for physx. you should be fine with 8800gt

Well the 8800Ultra isn't even supported at all. I put my 8800GT back in.

Looks like I'll be going with a 780i or 790i after all. Sounds like 2x GTX260 + dedicated 8800GT for physics could be pretty sweet

There are at least 24 games that will be out supporting it sometime next year. Ten will be out by Christmas. How many DX 10.1 games will be out by the end of next year?

PhysX could prove very useful at elevated res or at a lower res in very demanding games. GPU PhysX more than tripled my FPS in Warmonger @ 1920x with all details maxed. I went from 20FPS to 63. That's a potential to be meaningful. That's moving from unplayable solidly into playable.

Warmonger at the tutorial start with all sliders to the right, or details maxed.

177.79 + PhysX 8.07.18 on the GTX 260 = 63FPS

As above but with an 8800GT doing PhysX for my 260 = 79FPS

177.41 no GPU PhysX = 20FPS

physX is a marketing tool to sell graphics card, plain and simple

Well I tried out the PhysX demo pack thing and I have to say it's an absolute
let down.

Crysis has better 'PhysX'.. (yes I know it's doesn't have actual PhysX') but the
Physics in Crysis are much better than this crap.

Like did anyone else try the demos? LOL Whatever !! OLD NEWS as far
as I'm concerned.
