Default GTX560 Ti + GTX260

So, I upgraded my GTX260 to a GTX560Ti. I've got two questions:
1) Can I use the GTX260 as a PhysX card, or any other purpose (folding perhaps)?
2) If I can use it for PhysX, should I? i.e. will it actually make much difference, and are there enough games to support it to make it worthwhile.

My motherboard and PSU will support having both cards installed.

Yes to all.

I'm contemplating doing the same thing.

I have a 8800GS I am thinking of doing the same thing with. Both times I tried my computer wouldn't boot, though. Maybe next time I will try it alone and make sure it still works...

I'll guess I'll stick it in for folding then until I can find someone to buy it off me.
