I have never actually done it before but yes I think that is all there is to it. Maybe someone else who has done it will chime in.

Does physx even make a noticeable difference?

In games that support it yes it does.

it doesn't seem to work. the nvidia control panel only seems to open when i have a display plugged into it. and the physx is only enabled on the 9800's dvi port. it seems like nvidia made this kind of setup not possible, at least with their latest drivers.

Like I said I have never done it but I am close to certain it will work. Hopefully someone else can actually help .
