Can anyone tell me what to do?
Run Gpu-z and download drivers from the website corresponding to your chip.

8000 Series - Old, crappy
Actually, the 8000 series is widely considered Nvidia's most successful product, and the height of their reign.
9000 Series - Oldish-, not so bad
9000 Series flagship was a rebrand of the 8000 series, the 9800gtx was exactly the same as the 8800gtx, except for a die shrink which made it run cooler.
200 Series - Newest, Best
The 200 Series, while great, released very, very expensive, and I was swept up in this. When prices simmered down, the 260 became some of the best price/performance you could get for a time. It's also worth noting that the GTS 250 is a rebrand of the 9800GTX, which was a rebrand of the 8800gtx.
300 Series - The future
Everyone wants Fermi to come out; ATI fanboys so that the 5xxx series drops in price; Nvidia Fanboys so that they can buy new cards.
Ati Naming Scheme isn't much different from Nvidia's - The first number is the generation, the second is the series, and the third one is the specific model.
