What's the latest and greatest?  :D Do you still need to run the patch to run Physx with AMD card as main card? :D

16GHz It could NOT be any easier, it works on 600 series cards, anybody who can't figure it out is mentally-challenged:

This first post on that thread will explain it all:

1. Any card or IGP with the Geforce8000 series-level will work as long as it has 256MB allocated. People recommend or at least 96/112/144 cores for to match higher end RaDeONs, or even 192(GTX260+) if you have a 7970 since it will lower your FPS waiting for the PPU.
2. Install both (ATi&nVidia) cards in the motherboard.
3. Run PreHybrd, Install all "red-linked" latest drivers (and right-click "repair" the extracted PhysX MSI if it says "A newer or same version already installed" --If it just says "Installed" you don't need to repair anything), Right-click Hybridiz to select "run as admin", Remove NxCooking*/cuda*/PhysX* files/folders (except PhysXExtensions.dll) from the game EXE's folder. IF you play Mars/Alice2/Batman2City use the additional PhysiCor installers also.
4. Test for artifacts.

dr.evil what do i need apart off the obvious my hd 6870+ 9800 gt

ok the confusing part is when comes to software cous i am using 13.x amd drivers for nvidia drivers what should i use and what physx mod??
another question, if i use a 9800 gt with artifacts on memory i think littel blue artifacts is good for physx or it cannot work, given that it will not display only calculate physx


thanks

GeorgiaBulldogz Ok, noobie here. I am very excited to finally be able to afford a decent build. So far i just got in my tower and basics, Gen 3 I7-3770k with 8mb L2 Cache, 16gb ram, 2tb sata HD w/32gb SSD, and a GT620, and a 20" HD LED monitor. I basicly custom built it on Dell.com. My price range for a good card is $300, so i really like the Sapphire 7950 with 3gb ram, 384bit, and 1792 stream processors (not to mention it comes with crysis 3 and the new bioshock.)
My questions are:
1. Will my stock power source be enough for this new graphics card?
2. Can I install the 7950 as my primary and keep the little 620 for physx only? (my comp is windows 7)
3. Should i save up and buy the comporable GTX 670 card, which is like 400? (its only 192bit vs. 384bit on the radeon)

My purpose:
Old school gamer, never been able to play all the juicey FPS games on comp, had to stick to console because i couldnt afford a nice computer. Now that i have one i want to play these games, as well as record using fraps, edit with After Effects, and stick on youtube. I checked the list of PhysX games and didnt see anything i think i will be playing in the near future, but then again i dont want to spend $300 and be stuck w/o the ability to play these games. I know this has probably been asked a million times, but i got tired of reading through the hundreds of pages:)

Please, school me....

Do I have to plug in 2 graphic cards (1Nvidia, 1Ati) to a motherboard which must have 2 graphic ports. Or "only need an Ati card" to install both drivers and the patch?
Will someone explain it to me, please?
B'cause I got only 1 HD7770 and a broken GT8600,
and my motherboard only have 1 graphic port.......smile.gif

you need 1 amd card, and 1 nvidia card to run the physx, your mobo must have 2 pci-e card slots, and a 8600gt wont make its too slow compared to the hd7770

Fps in fluid mark without GPU

FPS in fluid mark with 640

I will do a benchmark with borderlands later after I go shopping wheee.gif
Hmmm borderlands lag spiking cant tell if its from physx or AMD doh.gif

i think the 640 is causing the lag spike, 640 only runs on ddr3 and 64 bit? If Im not mistaken, the suggested bit for minimum id 128 bit and a GDDR3 or GDDR5
