there are many people asking about this lately :) 

nvidia already stated that you can no longer go that way, starting from driver version 186. if you insisted on doing so you can use older driver but i heard there is a patch to make the physx work with ATI as the main card using the latest driver from nvidia. but it only works with win seven

^That is kinda what I thought, just exactly what is physics or physx good for?
I thought that only a few games were ever written to make use of a while back?
