something similar to physx card

Well I was looking for an add in Physx card, but since Ageia was bought by Nvidia, they dont make them anymore. Are there any alternatives without having to go out and buy a new gpu?

If there are please let me know, also workstation type cards are what i am aiming for, but general consumer-type products are also ok for what I plan on using it for.

The only "Physx" cards any more are Nvidia cards from the 8xxx series and up, there are no other alternatives. As far as the Ageia cards go don't bother unless it is for an older game that uses the older Physx driver, as Nvidia has dropped all support for those cards in the recent drivers.

Dedicated PhysX card: PSU question
So I'm running a GTS 250 as my main gfx card, but I have a 9800 GTX+ just lying around that I was considering using as a dedicated PhysX card. The only question is, will my 700w PSU be enough to power both cards, or do I need to jump up to 750 or 800?

Physx
I have heard of hacked drivers which allow you to run Physx with ATI primary card. Assuming that is correct, I have a few questions. 1)Which games actually use Physx? 2)Which would be better, a GT 240 or a 9800GT for Physx? 3)Will either of those cards work in a PCIe 2.0 x16 slot in x4 mode (4...
