physx.... I hate the thing. Its caused me more problems than any other piece of software. Have had to uninstall, reinstall, install, time and time again because its done something wrong or a game has not detected it properly. AND I own an AMD/ATI card so I get 0 benefit from it.

Though the single biggest problem I have with it is that nVidia is keeping it proprietary which makes no sense to me and annoys the stuffing out of me. There is no reason it cant run on AMD cards except nvidia wont let them. And this is one of the main reasons I keep cheering for AMD, theres nowhere near as much corporate BS coming out of them as there is nvidia.

Already posted in the Game Sale PSA NOOB!!! I'd still recommend picking up the Humble Bundle, because for just 1 dollar you can get Metro 2033, CoH + Tales of Valor and Opposing Fronts, Darksiders and Red Faction: Armageddon. Pay more than the average which is about $5.70 and get Saints Row 3, Titan Quest and Warhammer 40k Dawn of War. Saints Row 3 alone is worth that price. AND you're helping out charity Child's Play/American Red Cross, - also a near bankrupt THQ...
