AGEIA cut the price of their PhysX card to $99. That's a pretty significant price cut but I think that even at this price it's going to be a hard sell.
Initially Ageia along with Asustek Computer and BFG Technologies sold PhysX add-in cards with 128MB 733MHz GDDR3 memory designed for PCI bus for $299, but late last year the manufacturer suggested retail price dropped to the range of $179 - $249 along with enrichment of product bundle. The move also did not help to drive Ageia PhysX sales to high levels and now Ageia slashes the pricing of its PhysX accelerator to $99.

In addition, Ageia promised to release a special mod-kit for Unreal Tournament 3 along with two levels that feature enhanced physics effects.
