Depends. After receiving some info earlier this week, I think PhysX is actually looking up these days.

On the other hand, I don't think this method works anymore.

It won't work on an IGP anyways. PhysX will only work when you have a minimum of a 9600 GT / GSO installed.

Actually an 8600 series card is min req for physx. PhysX GPUs

But can anyone confirm if the hacked drivers still work? I know I had it working back in nov with my 5870 + 9600 GT and looked quite nice and I did see a lot of notible differences in games geared towards physx usage. If an 8800 or 9600 series card pops up in the BST section for cheap I might grab one to try out physx again with a high end system.

I was worry to have trouble mixing Nvidia and Ati driver, now if I have to get hacked one.... I'm better to stick with 100 % ATI or 100 % Nvidia solution

As much as I have loved the Nvidia Hardware, I want PhysX to Die painfully.
