You'll find what your looking for, here. Hybrid PhysX mod v1.03 .

*Edit* @ below...I used it with with every PhysX game I own (8 including Metro 2033), and it worked flawlessly. I even used it in 3DMark Vantage(my score is in the official thread using Hybrid PhysX). HD5970/GTX 260 PhysX FTW...

Yes nvidia officially took that out of a few games support I think becuase it caused so many problems, but if you want to try it it might be coo. good luck with that and let me know.

Nvidia disabled PhysX when an ATI card is present because they want you to buy Nvidia. They claim that there "might be problems" simply because they need an excuse that isn't "we want you to buy Nvidia"

Of course, the modified drivers cq842000 linked will work fine.

You might see sites claiming that it contains a trojan. It doesn't.
Some antivirus programs give a false positive, due to the free packer used to try and stop Nvidia from detecting and disabling the hack.
