more should be coming in soon.
they're all pretty positive.
the ability to use an old graphics card as a dedicated physics card is definitely intriguing. im probly gonna be moving some cards around and adding an 8600gt to my pc.

For me Physx is still just a checklist feature, there aren't any games that I have played or am playing that have showed a tangible benefit. But now that pretty much anyone with a fairly recent nVidia graphics card has physx maybe we will see more support.

Agreed. There isn't a single game I own right now that is on the list that uses it, but it would be nice to see it used in future purchases.

where agei failed with getting there product out..i think nvidia is going to really get this on the road.

Things that are good about this is that you dont need a sli motherboard for this to work. Vista seems to have some limitation..

Yes any DX10 board from Nvidia will be capable of processing PhysX. Some will do better and provide higher performance/features based on their power.

So would a 8800GT or a 8800Ultra work better? I am guessing the 8800Ultra will though. I already have a eVga GTX280.
