BFG Ageia PhysX Card 65

BFG Ageia PhysX Card Review

A Closer Look »


BFG always try to gain the potential buyer's attention with extravagant packaging. Their PhysX card ships in a box formed like a pyramid. The front can be flipped down, to reveal a window. You can take a close look at the PhysX card itself and the cooler used. BFG has also placed a bit of text, introducing this new type of processing unit.

The back goes into a bit more detail and also has three illustrations of Ageia enabled titles. The images show first generation physics enabled games. It may be good for BFG to update these to show games like Cell Factor, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 or the upcoming Unreal Tournament 3. You will find the minimum requirements for this PCI card on the bottom of the box.

Minimum Requirements:
  • CPU with at least 1.4 GHz
  • 128 MB system memory
  • Microsoft Windows XP Home, Pro or MCE
  • CD or DVD drive
  • 20 MB disk space
  • 300W power supply
  • PCI 2.0 slot
  • DirectX 9.0, Shader Model 2.0 capable graphic card


The triangle is sealed with two clear stickers. Inside you will find a simple CD sleeve which holds all the CDs, manual and pamphlets. There is a neon green piece of paper, telling you to download the newest Ageia drivers to avoid any problems with Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 1. A Molex splitter is also included, so that you will not loose one such connectivity when powering the BFG PhysX card.
