If I pick one of these up, that means I won't have to upgrade my compy for a LONG time. The CPU will be dedicated to everything else in teh game thus increasing my FPS, etc etc.

IF games get coded for the thing.

I do agree that it would be a majorly sweet bit of equiptment IF games get coded for it

Yep .

I hope it comes in PCI flavour tho .

Will be a pity if it's only PCI-E 1x, or 4x.

"We are all aware of AGEIA and its desire to bring a PhysX processor for physics processing in order to make games look and feel more realistic. We all want the characters to move and act realistically, and that's exactly what AGEIA's PhysX will accomplish once it debuts. However, in order for the technology to work, it requires an expansion card for the motherboard. ASUS will debut the card in February 2006 when more games become available to take advantage of AGEIA's innovation."
