No, you should use a later driver. There were issues with drivers before
325.15 for certain hardware, so there was a check put in to make sure that
was the version driver being used.

I believe the C2075 is fine with the 304.1160 drivers (maybe). If you
can't upgrade the driver for whatever reason, then you can always comment
out the driver version check in gpu.cpp and recompile (but I would suggest
trying to get the updated driver, first).

Good luck,
