And apparently any 8 series and up card will work as your dedicated Physx card. I'd be tempted to get an 8500 or something like that.
In Mirrors Edge with PhysX on my cpu usage would be 50% (Core 0) and 90% (Core 1) and this is a C2D chip.
When I turned off PhsyX my cpu usage on both would usually stay around the 90-100% mark.
So no PhysX is not a marketing ploy and I'm sure with a dedicated GPU for PhysX I'd notice better performance out of my card with games.
