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.

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.
