Nope. Nvidia drivers disable support for your PhsyX on your Nvidia card when it detects you're using an ATi card to render stuff.

Nvidia added some more crap to make it so ATI users can't or won't want to use PhysX

I think here is a link to a fix in this article as well.

custom drivers could be an option, but I hate messing with that stuff.

I might as well just say "screw physx" and just crossfirex my 5850. Like the tesselation will make a difference to me when im getting over 100+ fps

Thanks for the help and knowledge.

Ill put some research into it at least.

Cheers

Have you seen the list of physX games? It's not that large. If you already had a Nvidia card i'd say go for it. But (in my opinion) it's not worth going out to buy an Nvidia card just to play a few games with PhysX and have to go though the trouble of getting it to work with an ATI card.

And? Does ATi's multiple screen function work combined with a Nvidia card? No, it doesn't and you'll need to seperate them.

There are costum drivers, and you will never get the "perfect" Physx beacuse you can't enable the nvidia card's Cuda cores.. Also, i wouldn't bother buying it unless you find a really cheap one (and outdated).

Physx is for nvidia, the end..

you are right that it won't be as good as with just nvidia cards, however, you will still be able to use the feature and you will still get an fps increase, usually substantial so long as a decent card is used (8800gt or better). Physx is for nvidia yes, but it also works with an ATi card aswell if you know what you are doing

I really don't see the point of going through all that trouble to use a dying physics engine.
