Pizzaman what's so special about a 4890? I happen to have one and there is nothing "special" about it. Nvidia happens to be more special because the 4890 has no physx or cuda etc etc.
What's so special about PhysX-based games?

Other than Mirror's Edge, game play isn't really affected by PhysX.

Talk to me when PhysX actually alters the way we play games.

Not to mention than most PhysX-heavy games suck.

not if you've got the power to run them....

OP.... this choice is gonna come down to a personal preference, whats more important to you..??, physX & an instant ''plug & play'' product or DX11 ready H/W

ATI drivers are poor, theyre getting a little better now but you have to have patience if your gonna grab the 5770.

if you buy the GTX260, driver support will be far better but its ''old hat'' now & when DX11 is more prominent we'll be back here again no doubt b/c your looking to buy a 5 series card or a Fermi offering..

if you wait a little longer NV will release Fermi & the ATI 5 series cards will drop in price (maybe not much on the 5770, but it may make the 5 series deal a bit sweeter..)

I'm not talking about if you have hardware to run them.

I'm talking about the games itself.

They suck.

really.......

have you played ''Batman AA'' fully maxed out (physX & settings) @ 2048x1152

have you even sampled the sheer graphical wonder that has been spawned with that game..??, its absolutley immense.

im not trying to push physX as some great ''must have'' tech, but what i am saying is it adds some very nice visuals (as long as you have the power to run them), otherwish it can bog down a system pretty quick.

i could live without it, but i think its pretty cool....

4890 and build the PC yourself - however what are the other specs? Everything counts in a gaming PC - software and hardware.

While PhysX is somewhat noticeable in Batman: Arkham Asylum (steam, fog, some destructible objects, cloth, etc), it's still not gameplay-altering. 100% eye candy.

PhysX alone is not gonna persuade me to buy an nVidia card. I'll go with the card that makes the most sense to me. If it turns out to be an nVidia card, then so be it.

Btw sorry if I came across as kind of an A-hole. It's just that this whole PhysX thing angers me. I don't understand why they just don't open-source it. It has so much potential. It would benefit us gamers like you wouldn't believe.
