Agree with what's been said - lousy price, nevermind those BS shipping rates. And just to stress what Sushi said above - you can't use a Nvidia card for PhysX if your main card is a non-Nvidia card, unless you feel like working with hacked drivers. Not worth the effort unless you genuinely enjoy that sort of stuff.

say what

If you do look carefully there are quite a few of programs that take advantage with physx really well, thats right, not just batman AA.

And theres a reason why ATI fans are complaining about Batman AA been made specifically for nvidia
