I've just went on the website and it seems you get a more intensified gaming experience. It only requires a PCI slot and according to Overclockers, it seems to be brilliant. And i was just wondering does anyone have one and are they any good to FSX. Oh, and here is a link to buy them. http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=GX-023-BG&groupid=701&catid=56&subcat=594

Does it make FSX more realistic?

Does it add that heat effect coming from the back of the engines and make the sea look more realistic?

There is no support in FSX for such board.
It does not even support double-threading, not to mention such exotic hardware 🙂

Not quite true. We do have some multi-core utilization during load time.

Given nVidia's CUDA and the stream processing nature of the DX10 parts, it will be interesting to see where dedicated physics chips go.

So with my Intel Core 2 Quad extreme processor, a 768Mb 8800GTX graphics card which can support DirectX 10, 4096 MB of ram running at 800MHz, Windows Vista Ultimate the PhysX Processing Unit will make some difference?

As I understand the PhysX cards, the game has to be written to take advantage of it. So no.
