    Not sure if that would work or not? I use ATI so not sure at all. Do you not need SLI Action to enable Physix?

    *EDIT*

    Read the FAQ on it, and it seems SLI action is not a requirement. So you may just need to test it out. Or make a post at the Nvidia Forum and see what they have to say >>>

    NVIDIA Forums -> CUDA GPU Computing

    Please do post back to let us know what you find out from them, or from testing, so that if asked again I will know more about this. Thanks

    That may just be a software issue as I do not think you would see your screen if your GPU Clock was Zero.

    How does a benchmark or two turn out?

    Ohh, wait! I see your issue. I do not think you can use a Nvidia card and ATI together like that, or can you? Like I said I do not know much about Physx, and I do not think that works at all on a ATI Card or am I just lost all together?

    I googled a bit, and it seems you can possibly with XP but not vista >>
    Running a 4870 and a 9600gt for physx??

    And I see here modified drivers may be needed >>

    So I really think you need to ask this in our GFX Section here at TweakTown or at the Nvidia forums for a better answer then I can offer. I wish I knew more to help, but sadly I do not

    i was able to get it to work following these steps

    1. Install both sets of GPU's. Ati first then Nvidia
    2. Attach GPU's to monitors (2 preferably as you can see what you are doing)
    3. Click windows\control panel\all control panel items\display\screen resolution
    4. Click detect displays
    5. Click and switch to Ati display extended to Nvidia if not already
    6. Open CCC panel
    7. Disable CrossfireX if enabled
    8. Switch to Nvidia only display
    9. Unplug the Ati cord and enable PhysX from the nvidia control panel, leave open
    10. Plug back in the Ati cord
    11. Detect displays in the windows display control panel
    12. Extend the display over to Ati
    13. Click on the Ati display picture and check the "Make this my main display".
    14. Click on disable and enable of PhysX and hit apply. Important, if apply doesn't appear at this stage, you won't have PhysX!
    15. Leave on extended display
