I downloaded the latest version for my graphics driver, but before the installion finished it said that this install was not tested for my card to ensure compatability. It said stuff like it might cause it be unstable and what not.

Should I be ok? I choose Graphic Drivers, Geforce 7 Series, then Windows XP/2000 for the download on the Nvidia site. I have a Geforce 7900 GT. The download is for the 7 series so it should ok?

It just means that MS has not certified the driver. It is probably just fine. Do you trust NVidia?

Many times. All it means is MS hasn't given the drivers the go ahead. WHQL is a bunch of rubbish as far as video drivers go IMO.

I have had WHQL certified drivers toss me through a loop. I have also had beta drivers that were great. Yes, I do run a machine with a 6800GT. My sweet little back up rig.

Manufacturers may not go through the process for any number of reasons, including cost, inconvenience, or even the resentment that a paternal Microsoft pat-on-the-head can elicit from people who create software with integrity and don't need someone else vouching for them.

Many, many drivers are not WHQL certified and are as good or better than ones that are.

So, if you trust the source, trust the software.
