Should I install drivers from disk? Through XP device manager? From Palit site? Or nVidia official site?

Most usually get the latest drivers from nVidia.

Always use the latest drivers off the Nvidia website. Often, the drivers on the CD and on the manufacturer's website are long outdated.

Okay just the ones on the nVidia site?

Windows XP 32bit
I'm cautious this time because last time I ran a 8400GS from PNY and it had viruses on the CD!

time to upgrade your OS to take advantage of such a good card.
you should think about windows 7, it does almost everything for you..

+1 to malmental. There is no good reason to keep XP around these days.

Not many say that any longer. I am one of the worst Microsoft bashers around. However, I beta tested Win 2000 (started as NT5), XP, Vista, 7, WHS v1, WHS v2, Server 2003, and Server 2008. Mostly to learn, but also to make each product better because the IT community and users would have to live with the products.

That being said. Win 7 is, by far, the best of the bunch. Vista's reputation was so tarnished by bad press, and not necessarily bad tech, that it could overcome it.

XP is dying in terms of MS support. Win 7 is the way to go. However, if you need help with specific areas of support with Win 7, you are definitely at the right place (Tom's) to get help.
