Hey is the nvidia 8 series compatible with Ageia Physics card?

I don't see why not. What would physics processing have to do with graphics acceleration? I always thought it was a matter of whether or not the software supports it; I don't think it's a hardware issue.

exactly. the Ageia Physx card will run just fine with any Nvidia 8 series card, or any other modern video card at that. it depends primarily upon the software as to whether the Physx card will be supported

I bought one of those cards manufactured by Asus and I couldnt see any benefit. The software demos that came with it lacked graphics and I wasnt impressed.

I think its still a bit early for the benefit for that technology but it may be coming around once software takes advantage of what it could have to offer. I read in certain cases benchmarks was lower after installing a physics card than without it. I think it basically was a bandwidth issue with the data transfer to and from the physics card or something to that degree...
