    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

    Note that PhysX is completely useless...
  4. ^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?
