I would buy one only when a new one sells for $30.

I used to have one. Sold it asap for 160 on Ebay!

Not a bad idea, but wouldn't game makers have to code specific to the physics chipset being used? Doubtful that they want to divert more resources to something that won't really bring them more income. It's funny--by far, as far as raw CPU and GPU power goes, PC's beat an XBox 360 out of the water. But why are games looking so much better on a 360 than a PC? Because game manufacturers write the code specific to the hardware in the console. With such a diverse array of PC hardware, it would be completely impractical for PC game makers to do the same thing--so a specialized physics card would be a waste (as long as the game would have to be coded specifically to use the physics card--otherwise, it wouldn't change much).

I'm curious--I don't know of any game that is (or will be in the near future) multi-threaded. So why not divert one CPU core to running the guts of the game while the other CPU core is more or less dedicated to physics processing (unless there's a bandwidth issue that GPU's/physics cards can handle that CPU's cannot).

Alright, it's late and I'm tired, so forgive me if any of the above didn't make sense. Anyway...

i play LFS, a hardcore driving simulator - rapes my CPU because it does more calculation per tyre than games like NFS do for the whole car, with 32 cars in front of me i barely break 35 fps with 8xAA, not bad for a DX8 game!

If the devs of this would implement PhysX support i would buy one without a doubt - but they've already said it will take a while, and as theirs only one coder it's pointless because of how few people bought them

you exaggerated just a tad... I play LFS on my old rig which had an athlon 3000xp, 768mb ram, and a 5900xt. I got around 50fps with 2x AA.... It really isnt as extreme as you make it seem.

32 Cars infront of me, 8xAA - i get 40 FPS.

64 players in front of me, BF2, 4xAA - i get around 50 fps

Ones DX8....

Physics still need CPU power, but people seem to forget this....

Somethings up with your pc then mate, your quoted FPS' for both games is very low. You should try and sort it out...

Why o why would somebody purcahse this. It truly is a waste of money.

Yeah you get some cool physics but when your playing a shooting game you havent got time to notice in MP its faced past and while your looking for phsyics BAM your dead.

The only people that own that card are those that bought a dell with the phsyix card bundled in it.
