Good point I forgot about that, I was going to e-bay both cards... is the GTX260 a good physx card though? Is the physx system thriving or dieing?

Eh, PhysX is pretty much a useless niche thing. How can game devs truly support something that is only from one vendor?

If you like physx (some people do) then its the best card to use at the moment apparently, If you can spare the power.

I agree with Intel17 partly, I could use a physx card if I wanted to with this AMD card but I just don't think its worth it.
