There's a "Can you run this demo" link on the demo's site.

NVIDIA Cool Stuff

But yes, most likely. I've ran Nvidia demos on ATI cards before.

EDIT : Nope. Requires CUDA

I know this is off topic, but which gpu would run cooler? The Saphire Vapor- x 5870 or the MSI twin frozr 5870 (I am planning to overclock)

CUDA stands for Compute Unified Device Architecture and I believe that cuda is the computing engine used in NVIDIA units... that may not be 100 percent accurate.

I have a 8600gt laying around could I use it with the 5870 so I could play the demo?
