Hey guys ive been looking around the web about Physx and Borderlands 2

Becuz i pre-ordered BL2 already and just found out about the Exclusivity of Nvidia physx on the game and im pissed because im a AMD owner...

so ive seen what people to about it..
Doing a Hybrid GPU...

the process of putting a AMD GPU for main GPU and then a Cheap nvidia GPU for PHYSx...
So i was like WTF!?!?!?

I have a GT 520 lying around, which is PHYSx capable...

is this possible and can someone breakdown the process....

My PC Specs:

i5-2320 3.8Ghz
HD 6950 2GB oc
8GB Ram
Asus P8Z77-V MOBO
750 v2 Corsair PSU

I have a spare PCI slot its not a problem...

So is this possible?
I would be so happy... if it is...

I have heard its possible, I believe I read about it on these forums before. Try digging around in the forums, should stumble on something. I know it requires the use of a modified nvidia driver (that nvidia does NOT provide).

Honestly i wouldn't even bother trying. Physx isn't some groundbreaking technology that makes games 1000% times better. It's not worth the hassle to get phsyx working with a hybrid setup IMO.

This coming from Nvidia fanboy.

Proxy is probably right. Though if you have the hardware and want to make an experament out of it, go wild. Just wouldnt expect anything groundbreaking.
