    That is WHAT I tried to do, interesting thing tho, when I looked in Add New Hardware under Video Devices it only gives me Intel Video Cards, and when I tried to force the Nvidia nForce driver, it told me the best driver is already installed, and Yes this is a NVidia card, shows up under my Windows 7 as such.
