The question is, if I were to build a rig with an ATI setup for graphics, would I be able to install an older 8800 (or 9800, whatever) Nvidia card for use as just a dedicated PhysX driver? This is a matter that's been bugging me for a little while now. If this question's already been asked here, I apologise for the repeat in topics.

You would need to run both Nvidia cards in order to use the 2nd gpu as a dedicated physx card. Using physx this way is a combination of both the hardware and the driver, so you wouldn't be able to do this with the ATI card.

Well bollocks. That's for the response. Guess I have to wait for the modified ATI drivers to finally come out. Unless...they already have come out...

I always been wondering if ATI comes out with some new physics will it be compatible with the 4800 series at all?

Well they've got Havok, but that's become so commonplace now, it's often overlooked.
