Yes, I believe so. (I should have posted this in the OP I suppose)

EDIT: Does the 9600gso have 256MB dedicated graphics memory??

tbh I don't know, you'd have read the readme but being as PhysX only works on NVIDIA cards I would suggest that it the case indeed.

I've only just seen it on Guru3D and I'm currently at work so i haven't run it myself yet.

Once again I haven't had a chance to try it, I'm still at work but it would have to be though ffs, lol

I was getting an audio stuttering complete pc freeze playing MoH:Airborne last night with the 177.79 WHQL candidate. I would suggest searching Guru3D for a 177.83 thread and having a look, they've (northern hemisphere) had it to play with while I was asleep last night so will have a better idea of how it runs.

EDIT: It seems to be getting mixed reviews LINK

I'm just itching to ditch work and bolt home, new video drivers, new physX driver, new cpu and I'm stuck at bloody work arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh

lmao
