NosBoost have you ever used a physx card or seen one in action? Everytime for ex. in GRAW you blow something up there are more particles to generate yes but there is a second where there is a stutter, its like the fps dorp to 5. yes theoretically the ppu could increase performance but it's memory bandwidth is so small on a pci slot that it can't get information to the gpu fast enough.
