Default Nvidia PhysX Card, with ATI

I was just wondering if an Nvidia video card with Physx( 9800GT) will work with an ATI (sapphire 4870X2). Right now, I am using a ASUS Rampage Extreme (X48)

It used to, but nVidia removed the ability from newer driver revisions. There are some workarounds, but I don't know what they are exactly.

Well Nvidia won't let them use it unless they say it's better... basically trying to make them cry uncle.

Use old drivers and XP. Does not work with Vista.

AFAIK it isn't possible anymore (in Win 7). I tried it a few weeks ago w/ my HD4890's and an 9500GT and it won't work. Nothing w/ CUDA would work. Nvidia has disabled the ability unless an Nvidia videocard is used as the main display.
