evga X58 3 way sli
4 gig kit (hoping to upgrade to 12 gig kit some day)
xeno pro nic
1200 watt ps
74 & 150 gb velicaraptor

I don't think a dedicated Physx card is worth it. There's about 4 games where it makes a worthwhile difference imo.

A GT240 is all you need for PhysX, In your case, if you want to play those PhysX enabled games, you can consider getting one for $60, but honestly dual GTX460s are perfectly fine.

Just use the 460's and forget about the dedicated physX card, the 460's don't need an extra GPU for physX. If you had a single ATI card or a single 460 then that would be another story.
