For my NVIDIA driver, should I switch the PhysX setting to use my quad core CPU instead of the video card? I hear that if I have a quad/hexa core CPU, I should set PhysX to use my CPU to have less load on my video card. That way more of my video card processing power can go towards getting better frames per second in games. Is this true? What do you recommend?

I have...
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 video card [driver 266.58]
- AMD Phenom II X4 940 CPU
- Windows 7 x64 with 4GB RAM

Just leave it on auto-select. The drivers are fairly good at choosing the processor that will run the calculations at hand best.
