Using a FX5200 (128Mb) here on RC2 with the 96.85 driver. Aero works
just fine; same for the 96.33 driver.
Unless you are into heavy gaming, CAD or movie making, there may be
little reason to upgrade - especially if the motherboard supports only
AGP, which is being replaced by PCI-E.
Unless there is a video problem, no need to update a video driver each
time NVidia puts a new one up . New features may not be of use to you,
or may not be capable of implementation on your PC.
Consider waiting a year or two, then spring for a new board and video
card or even a new PC if and when the time and need are right.
But, if you simply must use the latest driver now, visit here...
A manual tweak can also be made to the .inf file, to allow 97.46 to
install. After Vista's official home release NVidia may have new
support options for older cards, and fully implement its new control panel.
I suggest that you wait and see...
