Damn, should have kept my 8800GTS. I wonder, would it work if I run it in my third PCI-E x16 slot for dedicated PhysX, while my 4850s in CrossFire handle the rendering?

While I would love to give it a whirl, I would personally say wait a bit, considering I've been hearing quite a few peoples having troubles with it.
