Default Dual PhysX cards?

Just curious if its possible to have two physX cards without SLI.
I just bought two core 216 superclock editions, and am trying to figure out if I should buy a new PSU for the computer in my parents' room.

I don't remember exactly how it's done, but I know it's possible.

"modded" drivers. Or a release of Nvidia drivers before Nvidia decided to stop supporting dedicated PhysX in systems using any ATi cards.

I see.

Never seen that done, honestly. If it can be done, I don't think you'd see a huge improvement, but you might very well see one.

You can only have one PhysX processing unit. Otherwise Nvidia would use the GPU as well as the CPU.
