<b>They are a waste of money IMO</b> - Why would you spend £150 to make the water move better and metals bend when you could get a new CPU or RAM?

Intergrating??? That's impossible, they are expensive, and they will RARELY think of intergrating it. Physic card with 5200? Or new rig?

Wait. I think there was already a demonstration with a quad core CPU, where one core was dedicated to physics only.

Even that rig, I would not get a Physx card. I'd either upgrade that CPU (Dual Core opty 165 for like $160 on Newegg), add RAM if you don't have 2GB yet, or just save the money until DX10 is out, and then either get a (then cheaper) high-end DX9 card, or go DX10 right away.

I'd forget about PhysX cards if I were you. There's much better things you could spend the cash on and very few games support them anyway.
