I think in the future a physics type card will really come in handy, but I don't think the PhysX cards are worth it right now at all.

i've heard int he future gfx cards will have phsx built in. it'll be a phsx and gfx all in one, both doing differetn things at once so the vid card won't be split and you won't need 2.

The 8800GTX already has 128mb of PhysX already built in.

That PC is pretty good, it is practically the exact same as what I plan to build here pretty soon.

And the ASUS crosshair boards are fantastic BTW.
