[OUT OF DATE]How To: Run PhysX in Windows 7 with ATi Cards - Page 5

post #41 of 1230
Okay....as far as I am understanding this if you have (2) PCI-E slots you can use your ATI(4870) and a nvidia gpu(8800 ultra) and have them both running at the same time and have the nvidia card working as an phsyx card? Is that right? Would I need Nvidia drivers for the nvidia gpu? Is there a difference in phsyx performance from a GTX295 and a gt6800?

You can't do PhysX on anything below a GeForce 8 card and yes you need Nvidia drivers.

For PhysX you need a Geforce 8 series or higher.

PhysX runs well on anything higher than a 9600GSO 96SP or 9600GT, but anything below that will not run PhysX as well as it was supposed to.

Yes, the 8800GTS G80 is about the same computational power as the 9600GSO/8800GS which handle the job fine.

For that matter, I've tried this with an HD2900Xt & 8800GTS 640 and besides having lots of heat in my case it was smooth.

I am not familiar with all the Nvidia card I have the EVGA 8800 GTS 320mb sitting right here on my desk how would I know if its a G80 or something other. Sorry I am red team guy so I don't know jack about these cards. I just snagged it up for 30 bucks in craigslist so I had a spare PCI card around for testing boards. I will take care of the heat and just add a water block to it, there all over the place used nowadays. It should look pretty cool, red and green spoonin' in my PC *LOL*

The 8800GTS 320MB & 640MB are G80 cards, the 8800GTS 512MB & 1GB are G92 based cards.

Either way, yours is just fine.

Ok great I am going to give this a shot. Is there anything I need to do but to install the 8800 the nvidia drivers and then the patch. I can just download the newest driver for the 8800. I just updated my 4870x2 drivers because I just put Win 7 on a few days ago. I should be pretty much good to go. I will let you guy know how it goes. I only have a TT toughpower 750 watt PSU in here till my new Cooler Master 1250 watt comes in a few days do you think it will have enough juice to run my 4870x2 and the 8800GTS. I am doing this old set up
Asus P6t Deluxe
920 I7 OC to 4GH
Asus 4870x2
INX720 Koolance water cooling set up
3 hard drives
1 DVD drive
4 case fans

That's about it do you think I can get away with this for my test?

fyi I had to apply the patch in safe mode to get it to work properly. it should open and have three buttons on it. info. the patch and burn(which makes the window disappear)

as far as 750W... would think it should be ok if your not OC'd a bunch. I always figured if it's got the cable it should support it LOL.

I just did this a couple days ago. Need more physx games.
