Right now, I have a Nvidia Geforce FX5200. It says on Nvidia's Website that this card supports Pixel Shader 2.0. The thing is, where can I get it? Does it come with the new drivers? I don't know which driver I have, it just came on the CD that I got when I bought the card. Can anyone tell me how to enable, or get pixel shader? Anything would help.

✔ Best Answer
You don't get pixel shader, you have pixel shader. It's hardcoded into the graphics chip. It's older technology, newer cards use unified shaders.

You can download drivers from the nvidia website. The FX5200 was released about 7-8 yrs ago, there have been no driver updates since 2008. Here's the last one available:
