Question does "WHQL certified" really matter?

i recently upgraded my graphics from intel integrated to a nvidia FX5500 PCI card (i know, i know, but pci is all my motherboard supports), and i went to the nvidia site and downloaded the latest driver, but the FX5500 is listed under the supported products page, but it did not have an asterisk next to it labeling it as "WHQL certified" so it that going to hurt my computer or card in any way? if so, it's not really worth the risk seeing as it didn't seem to make much of an improvement anyway (i don't have any games, so maybe there i would see an improvement over the integrated graphics).

Most of the drivers don't begin being WHQL certified, but their okay for use.
