Using a 8800GTS 512 as a PhysX card

Hi all,

I have recently installed 2 x GTX 260 (216) Graphics Cards in SLI mode and have now got a spare 8800GTS 512 (infact I have 2 as I was running these in SLI mode originally) Graphics Card spare. I was wondering if it was possible to install the 8800 as a primary PhysX card? I have read some articles about doing this and they seem to have mixed opinions. I have an ASUS Striker II Formula MOBO so I do have a spare PCI-E slot that I could install it in.

My question is......is it possible to use this card as a PhysX card and if so how would I go about doing it? Would it be a matter of just plugging the thing into the slot without the bridge and letting the computer do the rest or will I have to configure things, if so what? Would there be an advantage to running things this way?

Many thanks in advance
