Actually, it would work out ok for Physx. The card performs well enough. Oh and thank you hayder.master!

you dont need all that much performance for physx alone, that should suffice

well a 1x slot would hamper performance, but an 8400GS was hardly a gaming card to begin with.

Physx would work better on a 1x slot than on a CPU, so its got a purpose there as well as really tiny systems.

Nice, gives me a half decent option for people with these new systems that have no pci-e x16, but want something better than what comes in pci.

have a 4850, does it have physics processing units in it? If not I have 2 spare PCI-E 1x slots and may be this little guy can help, but in XP its not possible right?

He did it with Windows 7. Vista won't initialize multiple display drivers.

Vista no. XP yes.

That would work in Vista as it is not initializing multiple drivers. Well should anyway, ask nflesher87 if he got his 98GTX SLI+88GTS Physx to work properly.

So In XP NVidia does have driver and both the cards can co-exist? hmm interesting. Far Cry 2, Crysis - Physics?

Yup. As far as FC2 and Crysis is concerned, I cannot confirm if having a Physx enabled setup actually works tho with those games. You will need to wait for a reply or ask around.

EDIT: See above^^^^

Excellent! I had a feeling something will come up for X1 some day! If they include PhysX, I wonder if you can hack them so they can act like an X1-based co-processor for your ATI card?

The more important question to ask is : When will PhysX matter? It does not right now and I hope it never does. The gamer populace should never work in favor of a proprietary API. Of course, D3D is proprietary but wtf can we do about that really when the people who run the alternatives don't really care that much about games anyway.
