    PhysX, anybody got one?

    I was wondering if any of you own an Agea PhysX card, and if you could answer some questions I can't seem to find direct answers to elsewhere. Besides just making fancy shmancier effects, do they also increase performance and framerates in programs that use the PhysX cards? Also, will they increase performance at all in programs that don't actually "use" the PhysX interface?

    They suck. don't bother. They don't help except in a limited number of games. It doesn't help if the game is not specifically written to support physx. Sometimes it will SLOW performance because it is adding more detail. Is that direct enough?

    I will never buy one of these until they are proven to help most games (not some) in both performance and effects quality. Until this is realized, I'm staying away from this market.
