The 845G is/was an Intel chipset, so the 82845G is either a driver for onboard graphics or a software link between the 845 chipset and the graphics card. Either way, I'd be surprised if it wasn't there before, but just went unnoticed.

It'll be an old driver for onboard graphics. It's certainly not required for you new card - but as Windows can support multiple graphics adapters, you could leave it in - or you could take it out. It should make no difference either way.
