I'm guessing this won't work on my GTX 295, though, since the 2nd GPU would have to be on a separate slot to be dedicated to PhysX.
So would I have to remove my SLI bridge to dedicate my 2nd GTX 295 for PhysX? Someone posted a screenshot where they were able to select which card to dedicate to PhysX in the NVIDIA Control Panel but I forget which thread it was

Just having PhysX disabled in the control panel will be sufficient,.q

Chris Ray!!

Sorry to thread jack, but since you are still lurking I was hoping to catch you.

Do you kow if there are any lingering issues regarding Mirror's Edge with PhysX enabled?

I recently bought and installed it on a freshly formatted Win7 x64 RTM with the 190.62 drivers. The game is patched to 1.01 as well.

I get random freezes and crashes with PhysX enabled. If I turn off Physx it works fine, and limited play with vSync disabled seemd fine as well (but I couldn't stand the tearing).

I was just wondering if there are known issues or I am doing something wrong.

If I set my dedicated PhysX card to the GTX 260, Vantage blows up on the last test and aborts. If I set it back to the GTX 295's it runs all the way through
