I did some research but I could not find an answer to my question. I used to have dual 8800 gt's but I am in the process of upgrading to dual gtx 260's. At the moment I only have one gtx 260. I was wondering if it was possible to use the gtx 260 in the first pci slot and an 8800 gt in the second slot(without the sli bridge of course) and use the 8800 gt as a physx card. I heard it was possible with gtx 260's and 9800's, but I haven't heard anything about a 8800 gt. Also, if it is possible, do I download drivers for both cards, or just the 260? I only have experience with using physx when cards are in sli, so I'm a little unsure when it comes to different cards.

Thanks,
SPEEDemon

I believe it is possible. Its worth a try anyways ;)

Nivida:
A new configuration that’s now possible with PhysX is 2 non-matched (heterogeneous) GPUs. In this configuration, one GPU renders graphics (typically the more powerful GPU) while the second GPU is completely dedicated to PhysX. By offloading PhysX to a dedicated GPU, users will experience smoother gaming.
