The 9500GT is a very low end card plus it's approx 3 yrs old. I don't know what your plans are for it, but you could have & should have selected a better card if decent performance is what you're after, especially gaming performance.

"which version of cuda i should install?"

I don't know what you think you're going to accomplish. Are you hoping for better gaming performance? Or do you work for a research lab? Which CUDA optimized programs will you be running?
