XWA Graphics broken by FX 8600

I had to upgrade my computer and video card from FX 7600 which did fine with XWA and the other games and now it looks awful.

I have a FX 8600 GT and i cant even raise the resolution from the most is grayed out. Is there any way to improve this? I had hoped to reload and replay the entire X wing series but may have to give it up. I dont know why Nvida keeps dropping support for older games...but it looks like it is pretty much gone for these. Any ideas?

When i first installed the game and added the XWAUpdate pack of improved ships i got basic polygons and no texture mapping at all int he hanger it was like a nightmare. so i unloaded and am trying with just the vanilla game but it is pixilated to heck, with little squares all over the station exterior and the ships.

There is no Chaos, There is Harmony.
