CUDA is a parallel computing architecture that does calculations (non graphic).
It works with PhysX doing physics calculations, on simultaneous (thousands) threads.

These drivers are mainly for the GTX 200 and GTX 400 series cards, yes they can work with older cards, best to stay with stable past drivers.
