Super Easy Hybrid AMD+PhysX Guide

There's a lot of AMD+PhysX guides here in OCN but they're a bit complicated(some even requires you to make dummy plugs and extensions on your desktop which is annoying). I have made a ATI + Physx configuration working with only 3 steps

HD5970 + 8800 Ultra Hybrid PhysX configuration


Links:
257.15 Nvidia Driver for Hybrid PhysX http://www.megaupload.com/?d=A44EJKDM

Hybrid PhysX Mod 1.04ff http://www.ngohq.com/graphic-cards/1...3-v1-04ff.html

PhysX Driver Update(Mafia 2 PhysX support) http://www.general-search.net/fileinfo/15827513


Instructions: 3 Super Easy steps

(Make sure PhysX card is already inserted on your motherboard)


Step 1
Install 257.15 Nvidia Drivers, reboot

Step2
Install PhysX Drive 9.10.0513r (no need to reboot)

Step3 (make sure your Antivirus is disabled)
Run Physx Mod 1.04ff.

voila you're DONE!

Use GPU-Z to check if the PhysX tab in your ATI card is enabled.

I hope you guys enjoyed my guide

So do I install those drivers before or after I install the PhysX card?

the Physx card should already be installed in your motherboard before installing the drivers

Not meaning to hijack this thread but when I installed the card, the display signal would only go through the Nvidia card and not the ATI card. If the steps in the OP do not work, you guys might want to try the steps below.

This is for dual monitor setups by the way.

These are the steps that I did:

Here's what I did when I got my GT240. ATI card was already installed with updated drivers before the GT240 was even inserted.

1. Install Physx Card

2. Before turning on the PC, place one DVI plug on the ATI card and one on the Nvidia card (If you are doing dual setup like me. The Nvidia card will be the main display card for now so make sure to connect the dvi to it if you are only doing one display setup, otherwise you won't be getting a display signal from your ATI card.)

4. When you are at your desktop, download latest ATI drivers, latest Nvidia drivers, and Physx Mod Patch in the first post of this thread. (When installing each set of drivers, DO NOT RESTART the computer until you finished with the Physx mod patch which is the last thing you should install).

5. Restart computer for dual display or shut down and connect DVI plug to ATI card if you are doing single display setup.

6. Configure your display settings in control panel accordingly if you are doing dual display, if doing single display you should be done as long as you get a signal after step 5.

NOTE: I am not using a single display setup so I cannot say my method would work but I am 80% sure it would work. If you haven't already tried, I'd say it's at least worth to see if this works or not.

Good luck!"
