I want to run my 8800GT as a physics card. I think its kinda like cuda ? I have a mod. Part of my problem is the Physx sosent seem to exist in my nividia control panel.

Conclusion : I tried the MOD-FAIL- also Physx only works on 9 games currently. CUDA looks great for the future but i quit trying to run Physx with an ATI forget it.

If you choose to try again, here is a guide I followed to make it work and it did work: http://www.overclock.net/graphics-cards-general/633137-...

I found it easiest to do the mod while in safe mode.

Nope sadly however at least the 8800gt will still have a useful life and can be used as well for encoding as besides physx.

A physX ready video card will only accelerate the physics of games written to take advantage of it. Currently there are only a few games that do this.

I am not shure.. and i might be talking BS
I think i saw PhysX PCI card a few years back, when PhysX was not yet owned by nvidia ???

I might have dreamt it though LOL :D
