In all honesty, a 9800 GTX is way overkill for a dedicated physX card.... can't make any good recomendations on actual model, but you'd probably be much better off to sell the 9800GTX and purchase a new low power 2xx card as a dedicated physX card.

A good 650W PSU (since you mention Corsair, that would mean either the TX650 or HX650) would be enough for all of that.

Well depends on the game. BAA, Cryotasis(sp?), Supersonic Sled all need a pretty powerful GPU for physx at max. The 9800 GT is not good enough.

I don't see the need for a PhysX GPU so I say ditch the 9800GTX. Sell it to me =D

I think a Corsair 650W is enough. Got more system specs, such has hard drive, mobo, RAM, etc.? It'll greatly help us help you.
