NVIDIA offers free applications to take advantage of PhysX capability and CUDA

Owners of NVIDIA branded video cards have waited for a while now for the company to announce its PhysX enabled drivers that will allow higher-end video cards to process physics on the GPU. Today NVIDIA officially announced the drivers that enable PhysX technology -- free on any GeForce eight series or higher GPU.

I wasn't "sure" if I should or not.
I extracted this out of the 177.83 driver package.
It is a self installer though.
Not sure either if this will work with just any ol driver.
If not, you'll have to have the Geforce 177.83 drivers anyways.
I'm sure later on though that future Geforce driver packages won't have PhysX included in them unless it's been updated because once it's installed it's installed.

No you don't booman.
This Geforce 177.83 driver supports 8 series cards and UP.
So if you have a 9700GT it will support it and install & enable the Nvidia PhysX driver too.
This is "why" I take the time to read up on stuff...

GeForce Driver v177.83 with PhysX support

"This driver [177.83] supports NVIDIA® GeForce® 8-series, 9-series, and 200-series desktop GPUs, including the newly released GeForce 9800 GTX+, 9800 GT, and 9500 GT GPUs. The driver adds support for NVIDIA® PhysX™ acceleration on all GeForce 8-series, 9-series and 200-series GPUs with a minimum of 256MB dedicated graphics memory. NVIDIA PhysX System Software v8.08.01 is automatically installed with this driver package."

oh, I assumed 8-series meant 8600, 8800, etc.
Cool, I'll download the drivers and check out the physics...
Thanks for the tip, and you are right, I didn't read up

I installed the new Nvidia drivers and tried Warmonger, but no success. It ran fine until I started moving around. I know the game was optimized for the Agea Physics card, but I was hoping the new drivers might give me an edge...
