Hopefully someday AMD will have proper PhysX possibilities and we stop this annoying different parties using different options.

NVIDIA DRIVERS 9.12.0613

NOTE : PhysX runs on the CPU.It will work but it will work much less effectively than if you had a gpu-based physX solution (like a single Nvidia card or a dedicated nvidia physX card paired with either an ATI or another nvidia card as your dedicated rendering card solution), meaning that you can run in your system an ATI card and bump some physX into the games that have it.
Honestly, with a I5 3570K, i think im fine if it runs on the CPU. i just downloaded the drivers and will get back to you on if they fix the issue

Maybe a piece of your hardware isn't liking the game. This can happen with certain hardware and certain games. For instance, Nascar Season 2003 PC game does not like the Sound Blaster Audigy 2. Game worked fine when I took it out of the PC.

So its been a while cause i have been busy but i think i narrowed down the problem to unreal engine. it only seems to crash on those games, and AFAIK it crashes on all of them. This includes: Quantum Conundrum, BioShock, Dishonored, and Medal of Honor(2010)

Well that stinks. The "unreal" game engine was pretty kickass.
