Can I assume these are the nVidia items?

If so I think it should be fine to remove them as they are an optional install when you install the drivers, (as are a few Game related items which I don't bother to install but you probably would)

Yes, these are definitely the items that are listed on Control Panel.

You can remove them. When I install NVidia drivers I only install the actual video driver and the one related to PhysX.

The great ting with the nVidia Drivers is that they are nice and easy to obtain, and for even a unusual or older card the on-site checker seems to get it right more or less 100% - so if you do find a game that balks at not having these add-ons present it should be simple to sort out

Hi
Steve has some good advice here

I actually believe the 3d driver makes things look a little better :/
