That's a rather sketchy description with which I am unfamiliar and in part
suggests a very old age. It looks like might predate those listed on
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nvidia#Product_families . 8X infers an AGP card
type, which would prevent your use of any of the recommendations already
provided in this thread, while the frequency and RAM size suggest newer. Can
you please provide output from the following done in a terminal?

	lspci | grep VGA

You may need to prepend sudo to it. Even better would be

	hwinfo --gfxcard
