    I see there are patches to get round the Nvidia embargo on using other/ATI cards appearing, if it is that easy to get round why didn't Nvidia realize that it would be, just do the right thing
    and not look like **** holes.

    Is it that easy? Show me a working "patch" that doesn't shovel data to the CPU and thereby cripples performance please.

    If you do, I'll take it all back and state the opposite from now on. ;)

    The "mod" re-installs an older PhysX package, I guess?

    //edit: Just had a "quick" read through the forum. Now I'm not so sure that that's what the "mod" does. If anybody could find out it'd be much appreciated.

    As someone said before about Apple iPods not needing Macs, it's true, but they have several times tried to stop people from using software other than iTunes with it, with some funky firmware upgrades.

    Unless there's something in nVidia's EULA about nVidia Physix and ATi GPUs, you should be able to do what you want. If not, then supposedly you were "previously" warned.

    The fix mentioned above seems like a nice find tho, way to go!
