it used to be a 800 mghz pc with a decent video card (128) med ddr did a decent job! i think programmers have become sloppy, writing crap lose code, expecting the cpu/gpu to pick up the slack.

i mean my commodore 64 played games like beach front for example, with the hardware it had, nicely, back in the day.i see hardware doubling in speed/ ram/ gpu's/cpu's but nothing special coming out of the software end! now the physics card..... when will it ever end?

if i have an e6600 C2D oc'd to 3.5 ghz, why would i need a physics card? and like they say theres no support for them.pretty soon theyll say you NEED 2, 4 GB ddr3 sli'd cards with a 10,000 ghz processor to play that "one" new game coming out! it just amazes me. ;-)
QFT! We just have to fork out more and more money!

Lol. You know what I remember? Back in 2000... or was it 01? Doesnt matter, my friend I were very young... And he had a PC in his room.. Wow, I was so jealous and impressed. THIS BEAST would play all the games we'd throw at it! FIFA 2000, Flight Simulator! Everything! and it would run em smoothly... Well how good was it you may ask... Well I was young so I dont remember the exact specs but I know FOR SURE that it only had a 300Mhz processor. 64MB RAM and I dont even know what GFX card.

Wow those were the days. We would play FIFA the whole day. Age of Empires, Warcraft if I remember correctly... *sigh* But now, my current rig cant even play new games on medium at 1024x768 ... My friend cant even afford a PC that will actually PLAY games...

Not yet, as far as I know, but they are working with Havok's developers to lisence support for it in their drivers.

If the wall was coded to be affected, then it would work out what the wall would do.

i know for a fact that the geforce 8 series have a physics PPU onboard.. but as of now there arnt drivers for it.. im not sure about the X2xxx series.

Physx = FAIL.. doesnt really make a difference in gameplay.. i mean maybe if we all still had AthlonXPs and P4s it would make a difference, but not with most people having dual and even quad core CPUs.

The 2900's are supposed to have the same sort of thing, but do not know if it is utilized at all?

FYI... last I read about it:

AMD and nVidia Physics implementation will only help with eye-candy. PhsyX implementation will help with eye-candy and collision. So AMD/nVidia physics will not be as good as Agegia in theory. However, Agegia pulled off physics quite poorly as well. IMO, I don't think AMD/nVidia/Agegia physics will ever work out. I think AMD/Intel will push developers to use their spare cores for more physics.
Once again...
