Aero should work with that graphics card. You may however need to download and install the Legacy driver from the link below to enable Aero.

@JaidynM it doesn't work. tried version 9.8 a while ago, still doesn't work. i found other threads that they made it work using a registry hack, tried that one but still no luck. should i install the default wddm from ms?
