There are several "more modern" GPUs supported by this package, too, but the updated drivers in the newer legacy packages or the current nvidia-glx package usually provide more features and better support. Look at the other legacy packages for older cards.

See /usr/share/doc/nvidia-glx-legacy-173xx/README.txt.gz for a complete list of supported GPUs and PCI IDs.
