And to add to that, you might say that even if the physics card does the physics calculations, the video card still has to render the particles, and wouldn't that cause a drop in performance? To answer that, yes, it would. But it would be a very small drop that you would never notice without benchmarking.

And last I read, the PhysX card does not saturate the PCI bus, so bandwidth is not an issue. Even if it was, they do make PCI-e models.
