    No benefit whatsover at the moment unless you play or own GRAW, GRAW2, UT3 plus another couple of titles that have been developed with NVidia to promote the launch of Physx drivers.

    Right, the PhysX card will only increase performance on games that support hardware physics... Although more and more titles are being released that do support H/W physics, so in the near future it will be worthwhile to have a hardware PPU.

    Thank you, most of those games are origional Ageia ready (dedicated PPU) and I was of the understanding that loads of the games that worked on a PPU dont actually work without one? Lots of people seem to be complaining that many of the games that worked on a PPU card dont actually work on a Geforce 8 series + card without the dedicated PPU?
