    Ok, I just pulled out my old gt 430 and was thinking "hey! why not use physx! it'll be easy!" I was wrong. There are like 3 methods to get hybrid physx to work and all of the guides are really complicated, do you guys think it would be beneficial to anyone if I made a new one? After my 2 weeks of trial and error I figured out exactly what works :D

    Up to you, its bound to benefit someone.

    However, I personally don't see the point, does it really give that much of a boost? Modern GPUs are more than capable then you have the extra heat and power consumption to take into consideration.

    Nice, I wouldn't expect a boost like that but then again I have never tried to do it either :)

    well if you think about it, my 4.62 quad core which is already being used by the game vs 900Mhz 96 cores not being used by anything. XD I'll go ahead and make the guide. In the hardware section right?
