I am thinking it is the 173xx, but wanted to be sure. It does not tell
me exactly in the Beginners Guide or the Nvidia page in the wiki. The
reason I think it may be the 173xx is because in the beginners guide
it says:

1. nvidia-96xx slightly newer cards up to the GF 4.

2. nvidia-173xx Geforce FX series cards

3. nvidia newest GPUs after the GF FX

Where I get confused is if my card is after the FX cards or not?
Because the box my card came in does not say if it is FX. It is fairly
newer though because it is a 7 series card. Thanks.
