If you already one it or could land one for around $40-50 while having a decent cpu and psu then go for it. In mafia 2 it can make a big difference.

GTX 460 1GB + 8800gt.

Yes it's a fine PhysX card but a little on the power hungry side compared to other newer cards of equal performance.

It will definitely make a difference in PhysX accelerated games. All... 12 of them.

In mafia 2 expect 15-25% load on the dedicated card while some areas are more intense. Just having the card there so long your cpu is good will give a nice boost in that game while others are different. For me that 8800gt was worth every penny and it beats paying $90 for a GT240 or $70 for a GT430.

The G80 was never known to be efficient and often is a power hog. Heat is another downside while they often had caps that would easily break off if mishandled.
