Then again, I don't have any NVIDIA cards anymore (except the 8800GS for folding), so I have only a vague clue about how they operate.
For GPU drivers I'd agree with you, but unless the PhysX SDK has been significantly changed since the switching from the PPUs to GPU-PhysX, I don't see why it wouldn't work. In this case, the drivers for the game itself would be handled by Catalyst, and the game engine would then (hopefully) be able to use the PPU on top of that.
