I've actually never heard of these before. I had always thought that "PhysX" was integrated into the newer NVidia video cards.

I can't really find any real list of these types of cards. Are they no longer around and are integrated now, or do I just not know where to look? And would they increase performance in my games by a bit, even if I were to have 2 graphics cards with crossfire or SLI?

Ageia cards are long gone and current NVidia drivers don't support them. If you did find an old PhysX card it would be a curiosity, and not very useful on modern games.

Ah, I see. I actually had someone in another topic tell me this as well. Thanks for the info. One less thing to worry about~
