Default PhysX Accelerator or not??

I own an acer aspire E360 shortend spec;

XP Media Centre
AMD Athlon 64 ( 3700+)
1024mb ram
320 hdd
ATI Radeon X700 SE 512MB
And came with some fancy software.

[HTML]http://www.memory-express.co.uk/index.aspx?pageid=17&id=523871&utm_campaign=froogl e&utm_source=froogle&utm_medium=ppc&utm_name=Acer+ Aspire+E360-9NB73+-+Athlon+64+3700++1024MB+(2+x+512MB)+320G&rndstr=20 07-0328-649[/HTML]

I paid around £850 for it, about 6 months ago.
All seems well, but its a pile of sh!te.
I play online games on it alot and it packs up every 2-4 months. I either have to put the recovery disk in (Which cost £40) or send it back to be repaired, which is what it's doin now.

I was wounding whether to get a PhysX Accelerator? [HTML]http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-023-BG&groupid=701&catid=56&subcat=[/HTML] Don't know much about them. But it a piece of hardware thats in my price range and sounds interesting :freak:

Would buying one of these help me at all, or just get a new graphics card?

w00p its 3am

uneccessary, just sell ur X700 and use that to buy an 8800 gtx, b/c the gtx has a physx in it already plus a real good video card to go with it
