I upgraded to a Radeon HD 5870 a few months ago. So now I have a Radeon HD 4850 card just laying around and I want to put it to work. I know that if you have an Nvidia setup that you can dedicate another card to PhysX. For example, if you have a GTX 285 and if you have a 9800GT, then you can have the GTX 285 dedicated to your primary video and have the 9800GT dedicated to just PhysX. So is there any way that you can do the same thing for the ATI setup that I have?
Thanks in advance...

PhysX works only on Nvidia cards. So the answer is no. You can though run an ATI primary GPU with a nvidia physX card(except Vista)

I know that ATI does not support PhysX. I just didn't know if something comparable could be done with an extra card. Thanks for the replies!

well, you could run BOINC and only use the 4850 and always keep it running
