    Guess you need to install only the driver and the physx separate.

    It wouldn't be the first time NVIDIA forgot to include the latest version of PhysX with their latest WHQL driver.

    Will wait for others to report their findings - I'm still on 314.22 because of the instability and issues of the 320 BETA series. Black Ops 2 texture bug fixed?

    I saw on laptopvideo2go's front page that ASUS released a 320.11 driver with newer PhysX than this driver as well.
