Ati+ Nvidia Sticky

Recommended Posts

This Sticky needed to be updated for a while now so here it is, the new and improved Ati + Nvidia Sticky :) It is now much easier to get PhysX working with a Nvidia card while an Ati card is in the system because you no longer have to extend desktops to get hardware PhysX to work properly, which means no more accidentally dragging you cursor off the screen, and no more programs minimizing to your imaginary screen requiring a restart to see the program again :) The new PhysX mods work with the latest Ati 10.8 drivers as well as Nvidia's 258.96 driver package. So, on to the step by step guide.

 

1. Put your Ati card in one slot and the Nvidia card in the other slot. Got it? Ok, good :P

 

2. Have the vga, dvi or hdmi cable plugged into the Ati card and into the monitor, have no cord plugged into the Nvidia card, it just needs to be in the slot.

 

3. (Optional) Uninstall all Ati and Nvidia Drivers through programs and features, reboot in safe mode, run Driver Sweeper or Driver Cleaner, click on the Ati and Nvidia checkboxes, then click clean. Reboot when asked!

 

4. Install the latest 10.8 Ati drivers, http://www.amd.com/us/Pages/AMDHomePage.aspx

 

5. Reboot

 

6. Install the latest 258.96 Nvidia drivers, http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

 

7. Install the latest 9.10.0513 PhysX standalone software, http://www.nvidia.com/object/physx-9.10.0513-driver.html

 

8. Install GenL's v1.04ff Hybrid PhysX mod, http://www.ngohq.com/graphic-cards/17706-hybrid-physx-mod-v1-03-a.html Your Anti-Virus might detect this as a Trojan but just ignore it as it's a false positive. So disable your Anti-Virus if it's causing issues. Run the mod, click apply, wait for it to say done then exit.

 

9. Run Run Extras\PhysX-HwSelection-set-GPU.cmd

 

10. Reboot

 

11. Download and run Fluidmark (PhysX benchmark) to see if it's working. http://www.geeks3d.com/20100521/gpu-tool-physx-fluidmark-1-2-0-available-with-multi-core-cpu-support/

 

12. Test all the PhysX games you have :)

Yes. I had a 5850 + 8800GT and it worked.

 

 

HAH! There might be something for my ol' 9500GT to do now! 5850 + 9500GT FTW

Brilliant! Will I see a big performance drop if I run say an IM client on an old CRT off of the NVidia card?PhysX can't use a lot of power surely?

For anyone who cares, my Ati+ Nvidia Sticky is now updated. For my fellow overclockers who tries it, please leave me feedback to tell me if all the steps are working fine!

Thanks for this update, im using an Ageia card for now, it works perfect in all games except for Dark void, i can only see the 'Low' PhysX option. Also It can only manage batman on medium PhysX. Im hoping to get an 8800GTX OC, or an Alpha Dog but only if i can pick one up for cheap :)
