Vince welcome to the forum.

That card is almost the same as the one you asked about here,

win fast a340 agp 8x

and will use the exact same driver to work in Windows 7.

Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1

Yes, it supports Aero Glass. (DX9, shader model 2 or above, at least 12MB of video RAM).

The latest official drivers for it are:

ForceWare Release 95

(There are also X64 drivers.)

These are Vista drivers, but they ought to work fine under Win7.

The same version number is what you'd get through Windows Update.
