    Nvidia dropping support for older gen cards

    Nvidia has announced that it is going to be dropping driver support for a large number of its old graphics cards, including essentially the entire 8-series, 9-series, 100-series, 200-series, 300-series, and one card (the GeForce 405) from its 400-series. This includes mobileand desktop products. Support for a number of professional workstation products is also being terminated.

    It happens. They can't waste resources on legacy cards/chips. Heck, I have some really old cards in a box somewhere, don't expect to pull them out and install on Windows 8.

    So now my card appears on the list (9800GT). It never worked beyond the 295.73 set of drivers dating back to 2012!
