Yeah but It could alter the games our played...instead of the conventional bump into a tree with a boat and keep on driving it could be bumping into a tree either get stuck in it and have to abandon it...just think of the possiblities...

No, this is not just an awesome FPS booster. Its a Physics Card. It displays physics. The load is taken off the CPU, which is why you get a FPS boost.

And it won't do ANYTHING to FEAR. It doesn't support the Physics processor. Remember, Ageia is WAITING for the studios to finish the game before releasing this.

So this card grants more power to a specific graphic/game engine?

Yea I don't think you will be needing one very soon, I say wait till around the end of this year before you go spending your money on it.

Trust me, you'll start wanting it as soon as the games come out (April).

Haha, the Hardware review sites will have a field day
