Only if:
1. You use older nVidia drivers
2. You use hacked nVidia drivers
3. You use Windows 7's ability to have multiple display drivers

You need to find the patch /hotfix to enable physx when using an ATI or non DX10+ as a master card. I will try this for my self at some point (hopefully next week or the week after.

Heres a good read/guide
You need to hook a monitor up to the nvidia card , for the nvidia control panel to show/you can use a extra monitor hanging around, make a dummy vga(shown), or if your monitor allows 2 inputs (most dells do) run the cable to that.

Seems like a lot of trouble to me. Enabling PhysX in the few games that actually support it does not make a big difference. Especially if you have a primary card as powerful as yours.
