Ive had the PhysX maps for UT3 since i got PhysX running on my card a while ago. There is a difference. Its not so much eye candy, but more what can be done. For instance, blowing through walls.

Lol these are really meant for high end Nvidia cards. Intense PhysX makes me lag a bit.

I downloaded it a bit ago, and tried GRAW2 but it's been crashing since I installed the new drivers. I am gonna try reinstalling GRAW2 and see if that helps. I will let you know what difference it make when I get a game.:)

Hehe i have "ordered ;)" GRAW 2 just to see how good the physics actually are :)

GRAW is a finicky game as it is. I`m not sure how many times I`ve had to redo part missions cos it just ctd.

yeah graw 1 and 2 are both very crashy games to be honest i never finished 1 on pc due to a crash that happened at the exact same spot on the mission every time no matter which way you approached it..
and 2 HATES the fact that i have a physx card (wasn't that the point?!?!?) with an auzen x-fi it just glitches and makes a flipping racket! i might however give it a go without the physx on and see how it fares using nvidia based physx
