From what I've read on other forums, first you need a version of Windows that supports multiple display drivers. I think XP and 2000 do this, along with windows 7, but for some reason vista doesn't.

I'm actually interested in this too, so I'm gonna spend some time on the goggle and let you know if I find step by step instructions. You should do the same and post what you find lol

install the drivers and turn on physx.

if you can wait till around 5pm CST, im writing a whole HOW TO/Review on this topic.
If there are two nvidia cards on the system, then selecting which one to run physx should be pretty easy right? What about if the first card is ATI? Will that be included in your how to?
