.... you don't need much for a standalone PPU

There's only an option to turn PhysX On, or Off, period (in nVidia Control Panel); and it applies to both cards. That being said, how exactly would you simultaneously "disable" it on the GTX 260, and enable it primarily on the 8400 GS? There's obviously no options to apply PhysX individually, per card of user choice. Unless I'm mistaken, and they've since incorporated this capability into new beta drivers that allows you to pick which card you want PhysX applied to ? I don't see how someone with two PhysX-capable cards can pick which card it gets applied to, when nVidia Control Panel only allows the user to either turn it On or Off, period.

You need the older version of the physx software, the one that was seperate to the nvidia control panel. In that version you could select the card.

There is a PhysX control panel under Start>All Programs>Nvidia Corporation. It allows you to select the GPU for PhysX processing, or to disable it altogether. It is bundled with all newer drivers I believe.

Turning PhysX 'On' in the nVidia panel is a universal setting, and applies to ALL capable cards in the system. There's no option to pick "which" card you want to 'solely' handle the workload. If he sticks an 8400 GS in there, his GTX 260 will still utilize PhysX. Again, it's a universal setting -- enabling PhysX simultaneously enables it on all cards. There's just no option to apply PhysX on an individual card basis. And anyway, how exactly would the 8400 GS handle the PhysX workload in a game - when he's playing the game strictly on his GTX 260?? You obviously can't SLI them, and his monitor is connected to the GTX 260. The 8400 GS would sit in the system non-operable and isolated from contributing to anything.

Or you could upgrade your board to the P45 you know you want and sell your P35 to me again!

I was able to use my 8600GTS as a physx card with the newest drivers. I had to uninstall my drivers, add the 8600gts, re-install the drivers, and then I had an option to use my 8600gts as a physx card.
