Yes, I'm doing that now, but with an 8800gt as my dedicated card.

Following these instructions:

You can skip step 2 if you already plan to use a 2nd monitor for more desktop room, but don't plan to game with the 2nd monitor.

It's not nearly as scary as it looks. The only strange thing is the trick to make it appear to have a 2nd monitor connected to the phsyx card, but it's quite simple in all reality.

just wondering if i do this trick to get psyhx, would i need a fast pyshx card if i use a 5850 as my main card? or would a 9600gso do for psyhx with that card, or will it slow my pother down
