PhysX
 
Ok i know i didnt try to look it up more But

i want to know.. is it worth having.. gains in game.. which games takes this and How do you make it work..?

found a GTS220 for 79.99 Local... thought i'd put that in and use it for phyX

A GTS220 is borderline useless for PhysX. I'd say the minimum you want is a 9600GSO/GT 240 or 9800GT. As for whether or not it makes enough of a difference, that's up to you. But in general, I would say not.

I would have to agree with zero you are @ the bottom of the list as far as physx is concerned.

(thread jack) sorry, but how can that card perform poorly at PP'ing? My 8800GTX does wicked and its older.. ether that or I'm having a really bad brain fart... I don't pay much attention to lower end GPU's....

The GT 220 falls between the 9500GT and 9600GT. It's a pretty weak card. Your 8800GTX is more than 2.5 times as powerful.

$260 CAD is a pretty damn good price for a 4870X2...
