The requirements for PhysX processor are at least 32 CUDA cores and 256MB memory. I hope you got enough power supply and nice temperatures inside your case though. I tried running a GTX 260 as a dedicated PhysX processor once and it seems to run in 3D mode even in desktop so the temperatures are higher. I don't know if its any different now with new drivers.

Well, yes you could.

To be honest. You're better off using that 8800GTS 512 MB card for graphics and the 9600 for PhysX.

9600 GT = 64 Cuda Cores

9600 GSO = 96 Cores

8800 GTS 512 MB = 128 cores

you could do either way since it's your rig, but I would personally use the 8800 you have for primary graphics

as Ace has said you would be better using the better faster card (8800GTS) as primary graphics and the 9600GT as the physX card. Not many games now days use physX but when they do a dedicated card for that is a great idea!
