It won't help. As was mentioned, you *are* running the final 32bit drivers nVidia released for your card (the way nvidia internally versions its drivers is just a bit quirky, which makes parsing the device manager output slightly trickier), which happens to fall in the same batch of drivers as the latest generations.

TL;DR: You'd be using the same driver on a newer card (unless it's so new that it wasn't even supported before the 4xx branch, in which case, you won't even have any hardware acceleration at all on a 32bit OS). And before someone chimes in, Linux won't help, they discontinued 32bit support at the same time.

TL;DR: 32bit OS are EOL. That's your issue, not having up to date drivers is simply a byproduct of that fact.
