Changing the order of video cards in device manager.
Batman! Bah!

This game...

Anyways I was trying to do some testing with a 9800GT doing PhysX with my DX11 card doing rendering. However since the game sees the 9800GT first, it will not allow the game to run in DX11 mode.

Is there a way I can regedit this safely to allow my 470's to appear before my 9800GT within the system?

Uh, what?

3 things to confirm:

1: The GTX470 is in the 'top' slot on the motherboard.
2: The GTX470 has the screen plugged into it.
3: You are running Windows Vista / 7

When I run benches like Heaven it reports my video card being a 9800GT, which really isn't a problem however this game does not allow me to start it up in DX11 mode with my 9800GT in the system. If I take the 9800GT out I have no problem getting it to run in DX11 mode. It's not a major issue since the 9800GT is actually too slow to keep up, but I wanted to do some testing to confirm that information.

Eh, personally I would just ditch the 9800GT. There's no real need for it seeing as the GTX470s are plenty capable of handling PhysX calculations on their own.

It was more relevant to have one back in the 200 series days.

Yeah I agree, I was going to do some testing with a single 470 + 9800GT for others. I tried a quick run without AA and actually found my 470 was faster doing both than with the 9800GT doing PhysX while the 470 rendered. I was hoping to test in DX11 with a bit more gpu rendering load but alas that may never come to pass.
