I recently saw a PhysX card going for £20 in CEX so I was wondering, is it worth getting for that much? I mean would it still be used in games that use PhysX physics?

Do you have the proper port on your mobo for it? You might even find some Geforce CUDA-card for less that does better job at PhysX processing, provided you have extra PCI-E slot for it.

Don't all NVidia cards process physics as standard now?

Only those with CUDA-support, or something along those lines... like from series 8 and newer.

No. Not only are there so few games that actually support it, Nvidia has stopped supporting the thing a while back and disabled it in the newer versions of the PhysX API.
