    So only win7 x64 181.71 beta the only drivers that work ? ok its np though Cuda 2.2 will give more performance which some kind of screw out, nothing we can do to use 190.xx ?

    Why are you using ATI 9.4 instead of newest 9.7 ???!

    so i understand by simple follow up he physx will work everywhere right ?

    connect the 2 gpus, Ati on the PCI1 and Geforce PCIE2 (will Geforce 8800GTX G80 will work) ?!

    i have 2 monitors so my 24" will stay on ATI and my 22" will be on the Geforce, i make them Extended as on the NVIDIA 1st and ATI 2nd or only 1 Geforce Active ? entering the nvidia control panel and activate Physx, making 24" primary again and everything good ?

    Hardware PhysX is a benefit in games that supports such feature, and won't affects other one

    Yes, it add some extra effects in certain games
    Some comparison examples:

    Cryostasis

    Sacred 2

    Mirror's Edge

    It will run slower on single GPU with extra effects enabled (comparing to fps without additional effects), but much faster when those extra effects are simulated on CPU.
