How have you tested the card to see that it's working with that driver on antiX?

And how much would a used card cost that is new enough to build with the legacy drivers, anyway?

Further to your questions, steven:

Since completing the Antix installation, with the indications from lshw and inxi
that the nvidia driver is active, I have no formal test program, with only about
1/2 hour of normal activity on Antix, with no apparent problems.
I always make a point of doing some browsing with Firefox, which I've found
in the past to most frequently cause crashes while using a nouveau driver.

I have no proficiency with internal PC hardware, so I've never considered a
replacement Graphics card. My understanding is that the nvidia card on each
of my 2 machines are an integral part of the motherboard, so I'm not knowledgeable
as to whether or not a new separate card could be installed.
