I recently got a EVGA 460gtx 1gb graphic card to replace my old 9600 gso one. My motherboard is a ECS 945GCT-M/1333. I deleted the old drivers and when I go install the new drivers for my graphic card it does not recognize the new graphic card. What is strange is when i have my old graphic card in (9600) windows recognizes it and starts to download the driver but does not for my 460gtx. Any help would be appreciated thank you!

This is quite an old motherboard. My guess is that it cannot support the 460. It is definitely not a Windows problem.

What are your complete system specifications?

I have 4 gigs of ram, using the 945gct-m/1333, windows 7, 2.2duo processor.

I know its old I've had it for about 3 or 4 years now. If its because its too old or can't support the card should i upgrade my computer with a new motherboard and cpu?

I would upgrade anyway; your current system will severely limit the potential of the GTX460.
