    Interesting!

    (I'd be interested to know if any graphics, modelling or video software could use this?)

    nvidia SLI, and crossfire cards should be able to do physics too,

    the only problem is why do you want to spend 400 pounds on a gfx that does physics instead of buying agea one.

    not to forget heat/noise/power consumption high end gfx will add to your system

    I can see a problem arising now folks

    What if you have an SLI setup and an X-FI soundcard installed in the PC ?

    99.99% of motherboards for SLI only have 1 free PCI available when using decent cards (due to the cooler sizes blocking other PCI slots) and whats the end-user going to do, select an ageia physx card or an X-Fi soundcard depending on what they want to do?

    I can see some highend gamers (like myself) who use SLI get a little miffed at this slight issue.
