And the nvidia control panel shows a physx properties page - so does this mean the card is installed and I should not bother with the device manager entry?

what graphics card do you have? if you have a 8600 or above it already has the ability to do physx processing. Whether or not the drivers still allow you to offload it to the physx card, I don't know.
