Hello,

I have a GTX 470 and a 9800 GTX, the latter of which i would like to use as a dedicated PhysX card. However, it has a third-party heatsink installed and cannot be placed in any slot except for PCI-E #1. My 470 is currently in PCI-E slot #3. When I plug my monitor into the 470, I get nothing on my monitor at boot. If I plug it into the 9800, it works fine, except I want to use my 470 as the primary video card. Is there any way to fix this?

If you cannot switch the video output by assigning 9800 to PhysX via the control panel then you will have to run the 470 as the primary card.

I found a workaround which allows me to use it as primary. Thanks for the help though!
