Default physx questions

so is it possible to have some thing like a 9800gtx for graphics in a game while also using another card ,like a 9500gt, for deticated physx processing in the game. what i'm am trying to say is that can i have a video card like a 9500gt running just for physx.

Actually, i think it does it automatically, as when I check the physix control, it automatically had my 860gts as the physic card.

Thats only when you have one card installed.

What the new drivers are gonna allow is two cards in SLI + another card for physx only. I think something like a 9500GT would be good, but lots of 8800's are going for cheap now.

You can run physx with SLI already, but you cant get a seprate gpu running to offload the physx. You can however get a ppu running alongside as of now. But even low end gpu's slaughter the old ageia ppu's.
