This is of great interest to me: I still love playing Borderlands often (If fact, I might start a 5th character from level 0 even, lol). If this can be checked to see a noticeble improvement in the smoothness or FPS then PhysX will be added to Stygian (although I'll probably try to get my Asus P1 PPU to work before trying an Nvidia GPU).

Edit:

Found the shot below at firingsquad - Apparently frames are doubled in this setup using a PPU. Interesting indeed!
