You need windows 7 as vista wont allow you to run 2 drivers for different cards.

Bah its not a LOT faster.. But it does feel more refined and polished in areas that Vista well... wasn't.

As for the 9800GT as a physx processor. As you can see by my stats on the left, I have one and it works great. Their are a few little tweeks you have to do to get things working but once you are up you should be flying with all kinds of little particles and whatnot.
