    Works in Desktop PC System Utilizing PCIe 2.0 x16 & PCIe x16 Technology

    from the description in your link, this may be why it is working, there are vista drivers that can work on an xp system this part may be one of them

    https://www.geforce.com/drivers

    you can check above as it asks for system info to further search or visit the forum listed to the left of the screen

    OR:

    if it is working, let it go :)

    I never installed anything from the drivers CD, so I'm guessing it is onboard the graphics card itself. Guess I'll wait then til a problem arises...if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    @ trimis:-

    I rather think Frank's right about this. Checking through the downloads page that Liz linked to, the newest IS from Jul 14, 2016, though I get a different driver version.....368.81.

    Interesting you should have mentioned this one. I recently had to replace my elderly Compaq desktop tower back in January, and went for a modern HP Pavilion 'mini-tower', with the Pentium Gold G5400, and 8 GB of RAM. This is Coffee Lake architecture on the 14 nm ++ process, and has the Intel UHD 610 graphics 'on-die'.

    The Intel graphics work well for what I use it for in 'Puppy' Linux, though what I didn't like was that it 'steals' VRAM from system RAM.....thus, anything graphics-intensive leaves you with less RAM for your applications. I wanted to stop this from happening, so decided to go for a similarly-specc'd, 'cooking' GPU, in order that it would at least have its own pool of 'dedicated' VRAM to work with, and would leave my 8 GB alone!

    I went with the Asus GeForce GT710, with 2 GB of GDDR5 RAM.....also a 'passively' cooled item. I'd been using a GeForce 210 for a couple of weeks, which I'd bought some years previously; I could never use this in the old Compaq tower, due to its single PCI-e slot being damaged. The whine from its tiny little fan was driving me nuts, so I opted for an upgrade with fanless cooler instead.....and settled for this one:-

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-GT710...T8P53K27EB7B&refRID=9CJ6FZDXT8P53K27EB7B&th=1

    Identical number of CUDA cores (192) and very similar clock speeds, etc, to the onboard Intel one. Does exactly what I want from it; I don't game, but instead use it more for video rendering than anything else.....that, and graphic design work, along with a 1920x1080 HP 22w monitor.

    Not a bad card for the price, and runs pretty cool, too; averages 40-45°C most of the time.....on a par with the CPU itself. I use the Nvidia drivers, the 64-bit version being the 440.64 one ATM. The 'in-kernel', 'nouveau' Nvidia-derived driver is OK, but does have a tendency to leave the odd artifact here & there on occasion.....which doesn't occur with the official one. You DO need to compile these for Linux, but using the .run file, Puppy makes it a very simple, 5-minute process which even a complete idiot could install correctly!


    Mike. ;)

    Guess I'll wait til a problem arises to try drivers download. On a very unrelated matter (i.e. Linux) have you any idea why my Optiplex 960 would refuse to run LiveCDs of two versions of MX Linux (17.1 & 18.2), yet not hesitate with Linux Mint 18.3 LiveCD? Both versions of MX Linux worked fine in my previous Optiplex 755. Now it gets to:
    (....) Starting enhanced syslogd: rsylogd_
    stops for like ten minutes, throws up a red 'failed', and after about twenty more minutes there are lots of other 'failed' and errors.
