So while browsing fudzilla i've found this interesting thing , a a PCI-e x1 9500GT card. So my question is , will it be possible in theory to use this card as a physx accelerator with another Nvidia/ati card ?

That's interesting , and how much do those converters cost and what's the loss in performance(for physx as well) ?
Edit: or a dedicated physx pci card would be a better option and cheaper to get?

$8 from eBay (but you have to cut out the back).

I don't believe PhysX need much bandwidth since the Ageia PhysX PCIe card only has a x1 connection.

Another question , is there any difference between 8400gs and 9800gt (any random 9 or 8 series) in terms of Physx performance or are the Processing unit for physx are the same on every card?
