8600GTS as Physx Card?

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I am running a 8800GT right now and I read that you can add another card for physx. I am wondering how to get it to work on my extra 8600GTS?

yes that works just fine. You'll need to go into the control panel and select raedon physx and choose the 8600 as the card to handle the physx.
