Years ago you had to uninstall all nvidia drivers out of add/remove programs even if you just switched to a newer Nvidia video card in your computer. I did not do this and ended up with a continiously looping computer. To fix this i went into safe mode and deletedall the video drivers, then reinstalled once i was back in regular mode. A year earlier i did not know what to do and ended up reformatting and reinstalling Windows to fix the same problem on another computer. The Nvidia drivers uninstall old drivers automatically nowadays as the forceware drivers look at the video card to determine what drivers are needed.

It can do the job but a newer card will be faster.
Google pixel shading and look in the entry's of graphic cards.

memory max - 64
bandwidth - 2.9 GB/s
Direct X version - 7
Geforce 7800 GS
memory max - 256
Bandwidth - 38.6 GB/s
Direct X version - 9.0c
Just from these it should tell you how much better the 7800 video cards is. It is about 10 times faster. Everything about a newer card will be better. I sold the last computer i installed a Geforce 4-440MX card a couple of years ago. You are really dealing with quite old video capabilities that is not really up to any newer games at all. It may play them but it will not look good.
