And yea... the GT240 should pwn physx (based on nVidia's requirement) as it has 96 cores.
Apparently, PhysX on 8600GT only works with 196.34 GPU drivers + PhysX SS drivers 9.10.0222, nothing newer.

Is Physx worth it? I have been thinking about getting a card but I really don't know that much about it.
It really depends on the person. If you notice it, it does add a little bit extra. To me, my 40~50$ purchase for the card was totally worth it because it could be used as a backup card too. Unfortunately I didn't use the card much at all, maybe a week (enough time to finish Batman and Mirror's Edge), but I think PhysX can still be fun to have. I have to admit that not that many games have much of a difference with PhysX.
I think that if you have an upgrade itch and want to tame it a bit, a PhysX card can be the answer
Also note you need to have the space on your mobo
