Default can i use nvidia and ati graphics card

okay so i have a 9500 gt i wont to know if i can use a ati radeon 5770 with that so its like
9500gt = PhysX ati 5770 = Graphics

the main reason for this is because i dont realy want to frow something away i can use

also i have looked at my specs they are completely okay for both cards

You could try, but, last i heard, Nvidia drivers will disable Physx when an ATI card is installed. Drivers would also most likely conflict with each other.

PhysX can be enabled if you use an unofficial driver hack

Last I heard people are pushing away from the whole PhysX thing and doing something different, not entirely sure. I know most games that do use PhysX put it on the processor if it has to, which works just fine for the most part.
