    Default Nvidia 8400gs confusion

    I am running SL 10.6.2 with a Nvidia 8400GS PCIe 512 GPU and I can't figure out how to get it to stop saying "I can has model?" in System Profiler. I am using NvKush kext and the card actually works great I have full support in everything even though it does not say I do. I can run final cut pro and have the waves thing when I manage widgets so I assume I have full quartz. Here is what Sys Profiler says:
    Chipset Model: I Can Has Model?
    Type: GPU
    Bus: PCIe
    PCIe Lane Width: x16
    VRAM (Total): 512 MB
    Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
    Device ID: 0x06e4
    Revision ID: 0x00a1
    Displays:
    L1975NW:
    Resolution: 1440 x 900 @ 60 Hz
    Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
    Main Display: Yes
    Mirror: Off
    Online: Yes
    Rotation: Supported
    Display Connector:
    Status: No Display Connected

    I'm so confused here. Where is quartz? And why does it say I can has model? Please help?

    **UPDATE**
    Got it fixed using osx86tools. For anyone else having problems here is what I did:
    Open osx86tools
    Click "Add EFI Strings/Boot Flag"
    Choose GFX strings (top left)
    Choose custom geforce hex at very bottom of cards list
    For name input your card. Example - nVidia GeForce 4800 GS
    VRAM size: 512 (or whatever yours is)
    Output config: DvI-I/VGA (again, whatever you have)
    Then choose "Import string to boot editor" at top and then apply at bottom of next window.
    That's it. Hope this helps someone.
