super new to any type of forum. just lucked into a steal on a 630. no problems so far, but judging from what i've skimmed through here, i trust i'll get sound advice should something come up.

Well, if that's the actual configuration of your pc, make sure to upgrade your bios to 1.0.13 and be sure your esa firmware is up to date. Also, my advice is to dump the aegia card as they were taken over by nvidia and you won't be able to get any new drivers for it. I believe the nvidia drivers will run physx on you video card though. Any of the bios and firmware updates can be found on the resource page on this website.
