I'm pretty sure for modern PhysX games, you wouldnt want to do this.

Agreed.. most modern cards are so fast... that older cards just hold them back... see the other thread, I posted some links.

It's possible and there is a thread around here that is dedicated for it. I used a 9800 GTX+ with one of my 7970s but found it not worth the performance hit to have the few extra special effects.

per Nvidia.. you cannot use a ATI card with a Nvidia card for PhysX.

I think this used to be possible.. but they changed it in the drivers to make it not possible..

people need to use a certain version of older NVidia drivers for PhysX with AMD cards and fixes it needs to get it working, it's still working today iirc.

You'll want to look at the Hybrid PhysX mod, discontinued now unfortunately (still works with older ForceWare drivers and certain games);
Hydrid PhysX
NVIDIA went out of their way to put a stop to Hybrid PhysX.
