Batman AA is really awesome. I can't wait to get my PhysX card.

Think a 9600 GSO 768MB will be plenty?

I would think so, physics cards don't need too much power right?

I don't see any reason why it would need more.

The 9600 GSO is basically an 8800 GTS with higher clocks

I have an 8800GTS laying around. Too bad I won't every be able to use it because I fried it due to improper heatsink installation

It depends on what game you're playing. Console ports are most likely to support more than 4 threads, because the 360 and ps3 both have 6+. (X360 has 3 hyperthreaded cores...I haven't quite figured the Cell out but I think it's effectively 7 threads.)

?! WTF?!

I don't know if I need a 9600 GSO for physX. Most people seem to be running it on 9500s and 9400s. Maybe I'll test that when I review the cards.
