As long as the mobo has the slots and you have a good power supply it should be fine.

What is the make and model of your PC's power supply?

I'm not sure if the Quadro cards can be used as dedicated PhysX processors, even less so since the 4600 is based on the same architecture as the 8800GTX

It should be fine. Now just make sure the mobo has SLI support.

I think it should since the 8800GTX (G80) was the first generation of the unified shaders and has 128 Cuda cores. It should support PhysX being one of the first to do so.

Supporting PhysX at the hardware level and supporting PhysX at the driver level are two different things.

That's true, It was not until the G92 that PhysX was officially supported on the hardware level after a few searches on Google, lol

According to that list, the Quadro FX 4600 does support PhysX.

I have an HP xw9400 workstation that came with a Quadro fx 4600. I put a GTX 460 2gb in as the primary card and the Quadro fx 4600 as Dedicated PhysX. While playing Mirror's Edge I get increase of 7fps in this arrangement with little to no slowdown in Physx heavy areas. For a stronger gpu, you would need a stronger card to dedicate to PhysX, but with a 9600gt the Quadro fx 4600 is plenty strong enough. In fact, the fx 4600 is actually a stronger card than the 9600gt. I'd say run the Quadro as your display, the 9600 gt as PhysX.
