Well if you play games that support PhysX (Batman, Borderlands 2), then you can add a dedicated PhysX card. Although from my understanding its not really a huge increase and adds more cost to your build.

Not many games get a huge boost from a ded physx card some like mafia 2 and so on do but they are games that most do not seem to play. IMO its a waste of money unless you just want to say you have a ded physx card dont waste your money.

A dedicated card can do more than just physx, you can use it for cuda apps like adobe premier for faster video encoding and folding at home clients. A 550Ti isn't a bad choice but there are cheaper options like a second hand 8800/9800gt or a 9800gtx. They are not as useless as people make them out to be. It could be a lot worse but at least it is something to be thankful for.

They are almost useless if you do not allready have the card laying around if you are going to go out and buy a ded physx card its pointless for the money.

Unless all you do is adobe premier which I do not think the OP does.
