Hey Lads,

I have a pair of 8800GTX's in SLI. Running windows XP atm.

What combination of Video and Physx drivers do I need to get it running?

I have tried a couple of things and cannot get any Physx love.

Thanks in advance!

graw2 and especially that one character demo doesn't have as much going on like those phsyx ut3 maps and especially warmonger with 32 bots running around. the average framerate on my rig, which has a q9450 at 3.6 and 2 overclocked 8800gts 512 cards, would drop to the teens and 20's in hectic parts. ut3 to me was unplayable. felt very sluggish as compared to the same map without physx. Just dissapointed that's all.

Well I tried those drivers and got the physx working but for the first time ever for me with a new driver release most games just crash in SLI mode. I have never crashed this much in my life. Went back to the old 175.19 and everything is all good again.

Maybe the new drivers are not so good for 8800GTX or possibly SLI.

Dissapointing, I shall have to wait for a future update.

After uninstalling the 175.19 drivers, did you clean your registry before installing the 177 set? Might help.

No I didn't. Nowadays I just use add/remove programs in the control panel.

Can you hit me up with a guide?
