Default 4890 + 8800gt?

I thought this might be the place to ask. Could you use a 4890 as your main graphics and a 8800 gt as the Physx card?

Yes you can.
PysX doesnt add much though. Youll find youll be using it as more of a CUDA card.

CUDA wouldn't be that useful either since ati cards can also run ggpu applications (ATI Stream).

True, although neither one of them has that great of support yet. Hopefully Opencl will change that.
