About stinking time!
I love EVGA cards, I have two GeForce 7900GS cards and both are EVGA. They run great!
The first questions is, of course, what games will use Nvidia Physics?

I think a lot of games already support this.

Nvidia Physics Games List
Not a very large list and I don't own a-one-of-em

But I have been eyeing Darkest of Days & Cryostasis

That's not the full list, here's a more complete list:
PhysX Games List

PhysX is something nvidia bought from Aegia (now defunct), it's been in existence for quite a few years now.

Ageia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There's a better list here:
PhysX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Can't find any list which definitely has every title.

thats pretty lame, Nvidia doesn't even have a complete list!?
I only have two games on that list
* Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway
* Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter

and I don't even have a video card that supports physics drivers
7900GS

well the card itself seems more like a lame duck honestly, its a nice novelty item but thats about it. A GTS250 is overkill for Physx and you can get a GTS250 and a GTX275 cheaper seperate if you know where to look.

Well yes, and some games which have nice physics effects don't even require nvidia's PhysX.

I think Crysis/CryEngine just makes use of a multi-core CPU, using their own physics coding.

yea and with the new standard (name escapes me) it will run on both ATI and Nvidia cards via the stream processors and bypass cuda all together. It will likly be like Havoc in that it gets wide spread adoption
