of course ill wait for benchmarks of the 2950 Pro. As for the PhysX card, that probably wont happen UNLESS there is a big differ with n without the card in the game.

i might get Unreal Tournament 3 also, but i have to wait for the demos to come out first.

FYI, i just got a job at Cold Stone n im still in training. Next week is when i get my own work schedule n then i will get paid $7.50 n up. I've got NOTHING to pay for: no insurances (yet), no bills, nothing. This is my big opportunity to fully upgrade my computer n get it up n running again because it's been hard looking for work for a year n attending school. I may not have another chance to be able to fully upgrade my computer, once i get my own car, pay for insurance n bills n stuff.
Your choice. If you've got nothing to pay for then just save the money. You never know when you'll need it. I threw the money I made from my first three summer jobs into the stock market - around 6k. Now its 25k.

right, of course ill wait for benchmarks. As for games that said "yes we will support the PhysX Accelerator" already, i might get some that support it, but first demos before i decide purchasing the games. I still wouldnt mind getting the card just for one game, thats my decision.

great news to just have the processor do the physics. how many of us want to add 150 to our budgets for a physics card with minimal benefits and having those tacky drivers on the system when the cpu could handle it? great news!

Then you are one lucky man ,considering how the market's been the past couple months.

People usually don't see that much of a profit so soon, it usually takes years.
