You can only install one driver or the other, Windows does not allow two display drivers to be active at the same time.

so basically my 9800GT is going to be my brand new paper weight? :blink: does ageia has driver that uses nvidia GPU as physx accelerator? ( usually i enable physx acceleration via nvidia control panel ) instead of physx card

The answer to your original question is no. Since you have an ATI-based motherboard with an ATI video card, you will need a dedicated PhysX card. I have this card but mine is the PCIe x1 version: http://www.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=19&am...amp;modelmenu=1

 

Once you get the card (if you can find it), you will have to install the latest drivers. You can get them here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx_9.09.0010_whql.html

The nVidia PhysX driver can be installed by itself along with ATI drivers. But that won't help. As soon as the nVidia driver see an ATI video card PhysX support for the nVidia graphics card will be disabled.

Does physx actually increase performance, or just add a a cheap gimmick that only works on a handful of games?

IMO ^

that was my serious answer. It *may* make a difference in the future but other than me HAVING to have it since I have an nvidia card. I wouldn't focus on Physx in your choice to upgrade
