That is only for vintage rigs, get a cheap gt240, gt430, or a second hand 8800gt. Then install the hacked drivers and do not go with any newer physx driver over 9111107 or physx won't work but only in software mode.

Yep, Hybrid PhysX no longer works with the current drivers.

One can install the latest graphics drivers but they have to manually uninstall the physx drivers then install physx version 9111107 and once that is done all works.

That is an ancient graphics card. Get like a 8800GT minimum, or even better a GTS250.

I would recommend using the 285.62 driver set for the drivers on the Nvidia card. Just install the driver and the Physx, but I don't even think you need the display driver.

That isn't a graphics card, its a PPU from Ageia and its the pci-e version which is uncommon. It is only fit for retro use and one can do a simple file swap to manage some support with it under current drivers but it is a step by step process. I bought one to go with my 7800gs for my athlon xp machine.

My friend actually had one to supplement his 8600GT back in the day when he BOUGHT his custom computers and not built them.
