It's like a GPU that deals with physics. It's a add on card that goes into your PCI slot.

Dude, okay...no need to keep saying that. We all know you like Falcon Northwest and the fact that they have the Ageia PhysX PPU. Sheesh...

Actually I don't give a hoot about Falcon Northwest, or any prebuilt PC company for that matter. I just choose them simply because they offer the Ageia PhysX. Because the PhysX is such a nice and new technology, and well over 20 games announced to be released in 2006 are compatible with it. I only choose Falcon Northwest because Alienware is over rated, Dell sucks IMO, and any other company I don't know.

If it was up to me, I'd go Custom, DIY. But hey, to each his own right?

Dell XPS Renegade.....*drool*, that thing is gonna cost you a fortune, im guessing 10 grand? I heard its sold out, but i think you could customize one with the same specs on their website. Four video cards running at once, brings a new meaning to SLi.

More like a waste of power and money. No game will use that much power, unless you plan on playing with a 30" or bigger screen with your resolution, AA, AF to the max. If you want Quad SLI for just a 19", per se, it's useless. There's so much power gone down the drain it's a waste.

That's very true.
