It's about time. PhysX cards on their own are nearly useless in almost every game that supports it. But an Nvidia card with a build in PhysX processor is a huge boon. Game companies that make their games with Nvidia in mind (or funded by them) can add that engine right into their games.

Now if only they'd release a card with that built on by May. Cause thats when I'm building my 'monster machine' lol.

That and for the love of god can ASUS make a high end board for AMD chips that uses Nvidia 790i and SLI capability? Ever since AMD bought ATI all the high end AMD boards use ATI cores and Crossfire. I want to support my favorite processor company but I refuse to use ATI cards, I've had far to many bad experiences with them over the years. So if a solid company like ASUS doesn't release an AMD Phenom board with Nvidia 780i and SLI, I'll have to go Intel.
