are the physx cards worth it as an investment like if crysis supports it.or for any reason because the price has drooped quite a bit.

i still dont think they are worth it.

the new cards that will probably be required to play crysis on max will most probably be good enough to handle its physics as well.

Agreed. :)

Not worth a penny.

I wouldn't want one if it was free.

And the reason they dropped because they're desperate to sell them.

they are decent if you play the game or two that are supported, beyond that they are usless, better to wait for nvidia or ati to release their own physics cards

I made a prediction ~6 months ago

The physx cards ar a load of WANK!
These functions will be greatly reworked and included in future gfx cards.

Its not that i know im right, but the mate i was 'discussing' it with, thought EVERYONE would eventually have a separate physx card.

So....I know im right cos hes ALWAYS wrong

I believe that the new ATI cards (2900's) come with an integrated physics chip, so I wouldn't buy one of the separate cards. Once games need physics chips, they will come on the GPUs.

Yeah, they don't do much of anything. Know why?








I have one. :cry:

Well you're half right; Direct X10 GPUs simply have the ability to do Physics processing with the shaders/stream processors.

Oh, is that what it is? I didn't really look into it, I just remember ATI advertising physics processing capability in their new GPUs, but that makes sense.

Don't feel sad..

You only wasted money and time. :wink:

Hey, hey, hey. I didn't waste the money.....



My folks did. :lol:  If I could turn back time, I'd invest the 250 bucks in probably a better monitor or so at the time.

Thanks for trying to make me feel better though prozac. :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

here, watch this vid of crysis and see the physics used. Im pretty sure they are not using a separate physics card for those....are they??? :lol:  :lol: 

click me...click meee!!!!
