GPU is greyed out and up to date CUDA driver is not being recognized. The fx4800 is on Adobes list of approved GPUs. Is this a common issue or is my machine having problems?

here is an image of the weirdness

Yeah, that's because AE CC 2015 doesn't make use of Cuda.

it gets lamer - GPU is greyed out and so is the check-box for unsupported devices



my previews seem okay

1) This will only help you if you're using the ray-tracing renderer. (Even then, the FX 4800 will not be a high-performance card.)

2) CUDA 7.x does not support the aging Quadro FX 4800. Do as the CUDA driver suggests in your screenshot and install 6.5.x.

I use C4D for all my 3D elements - does AE's Raytrace have any other practical uses?

[solomon arsalai] "I use C4D for all my 3D elements - does AE's Raytrace have any other practical uses?"

See The Ray-traced 3D renderer [link] for an overview of its features and limitations.

Also, be aware that the ray-tracing renderer is no longer being actively developed; instead, Adobe is focusing on C4D integration:
