well i recently played the Mafia II demo and i know my HD4870 hasn't got PhysX capabilities but i wondered if sticking a 8800GS as a dedicated PhysX card will work.

My Setup:
Core 2 quad q9300
4gb ram
MSI P45 Platinum CrossfireX
HD4870 1GB

OS; Windows 7 64 Bit

Thanks :D

yes it will work.but u have to search sites for hacked physx

So it will work even though i have a crossfire motherboard or do i need an SLI motherboard

Also another thing would i require more power, Example: Buying a new power supply?

I think u will need a bigger one 600watt maybe both 4870 and 8800 are power hungry all this trouble really worth for just a game?

I think i better just buy another 4870 and a 700w OCZ
