Can someone tell me what is the cheapest nvidia card that can be used with this method, as I want physX, but don't want to spend anymore money, ($615) was a bit much for me but I couldn't resist as it was onsale, and available. Or should I try buying an used, original Ageia 128mb 1x card??
What pipnasty said. You need a Nvidia 8series or newer. I am not sure if this mod will work with an Ageia card. If you had one laying around it wouldn't hurt to try it. You can probably find an inexpensive 8800 used in the for sale section here on OCN.

You might want to double check that card. I was reading another post today and he said he could not enable PhysX on that card. Go through your Nvidia setings and see if you can activate it or use GPU-Z that will tell you.

That's from Stardock Object Dock Plus

I don't think it will be enough. The 8500GT is a weak card.. but I suppose if you only plan to play on low to medium settings it will do.

Can you confirm that this does work for XP? I currently have both video drivers working, but GPU-Z shows PhysX disabled, although Nvidia Control Panel shows it as active.

Sorry but I cannot confirm since I'm using Windows 7 64bit. But according to the PhysX patch (v1.02), it's supposed to be working for Windows XP. Are you using 32bit or 64bit XP? I think it'll work with the 32bit, but not the 64bit

Try running Fluidmark v1.1.1 to see if it's "hardware physX".

For some reason, every time I tried to load the program, it would fail...

HMM!

Tried a reinstall and an older version.

I never tried the older version, only the v1.1.1. Try downloading it here. Maybe the file you downloaded wasn't complete.
