I have my old 9800 GTX laying around. Is there a way to use this as a dedicated PhsyX card. And will it be anygood to use in a PCIe 4x slot. Since my P5K-E only had a x16 and a x4 slot.

If Nvidia opened, it i might have actually considered BUYING a ppu. Anyways, i did the exact same thing...use this http://physxinfo.com/news/942/hybrid-physx-mod-1-02-195... Install ati drivers, restart, install nvidia drivers (i think you need 195.xx), then before you restart run this program. Only works on win 7 or xp (no vista) that supports dual gpu drivers. I had this setup running for a few months...but then i realized NOTHING REALLY USES PHYSX! http://www.nzone.com/object/nzone_physxgames_home.html even then, phyx is pretty weak minus Batman...even then do you really need cloth effects? So i took out the ppu, and now my 5850 runs 20C cooler | Report abuse Best solution XD_dued March 21, 2010 9:17:38 PM Also...check out this...cpu physics http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/showthread.php?t=24... why kill your frame rate when you can still get impressive physics? | Report abuse ern88 March 21, 2010 10:02:34 PM Thanks for the info XD. | Report abuse ern88 April 1, 2010 3:48:45 PM Best answer selected by ern88. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>How to set up ATI 5850 and use NVIDIA 9800 as phsyX?> Related ressources: ForumATI Cards + Nvidia Physx.
