BFG Tech PhysX as PCI Device in device manager


I have the this physx card and it displays as 'pci device' in device manager, running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. Even though when I installed the latest Nvidia drivers for my graphics card via

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?

BTW I know the card is quite ancient nowadays but I decided to put it in the computer anyway

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.

whatever the case, it doesn't sound like it's working properly.
