5870 + 470

to start let me say that i have aquiered a GTX470 from PNY. i have no idea how i came into my house but for some reason it was sitting on my kitchen floor, the card works but i am worried that someone that i do not know of, broke into my house and put a nvidia card on my kitchen floor. but thats besides the point.

also my primary card is a Asus EAH5870/G/, and i want to know if there is a hack driver that will allow me to use the 5870 as my primary and use the GTX 470 as a physx/cuda card.

other specs: Asus formula III, Ausu 5870 950core 1300mem, AMD 965 4.01ghz, 4gb 1333 ram.

obviously some moderators on this forum do not know what its used for. DONT LOCK THIS POST, its a reasonable question! i have googled it! and checked forums about this info! why would you lock a question that someone needs the answer to, esspecially since there is no volgarity here?

this doesnt work. you need a hack driver. nvidia patched tehre drivers so this method wouldnt work.

sigh, the GTX470 as a PhysX card is a waste as any card faster and including the GTS250 is plenty fast enough to do the GPU acceleration, then you have to ask yourself if a $350 card is worth it for GPU PhysX where there are only 15 games (GPU PhysX games)

Unless you want to deal with re-hacking drivers every time a driver update comes along, I would probably just ebay the 470 :/

alright i got physx to work on it! on metro 2033 with a 5870 and no physx card i got between 40 and 50 FPS on all MAX setting including dx11 setting. and with the 470 physx card i get between 60 and 70FPS HUGE improvment!
