Very true! nvidia still hasn't found a way to put the PSU for a video card OUTSIDE THE BOX as Voodoo did with their last Voodoo 3 card. It was a stellar idea, plug an ac adaptor into the front of the video card, and that into your PSU or power strip.

Heat was diminished, the system PSU didn't have to be that high as it is now etc. etc. but nope, that tech is gone for some reason.

I dunno, Direct X needs to support/do all the physics, then there should be a hardware/software solutions after than that DX can call to. Otherwise we are back at the voodoo, matrox era of one game works on this product, another on that product.

What a mess.
