Default GeForce

I was wondering if this card will run F.E.A.R., it's a GeForce FX5200 128MB, AGP, 8x.


These are my specs:


2.00GHz
AMD Athlon 2400+
512MB RAM (184pin, PC2700)
200W power supply
GeForce4 MX (At the moment, hoping to get this card if it'll run FEAR, because I don't want to have to change the power supply.)

Here are the supported chipsets. I don't play it myself, I just googled it.

SUPPORTED CHIPSETS
Nvidia GeForce™ 4Ti, GeForce™ FX 5900, FX 5900 Ultra, 6800, 6800 GT, 6800 Ultra, 7800GT, 7800GTX
ATI® Radeon® 9600, 9600 Pro, 9600 XT, 9700, 9700 Pro, 9800 Pro, x700 XT, x800 series, x850 series, X1K family.

You could get an FX5900. I got an FX5200, and I don't think it will do any major gaming. I can play Halo and NFSMW on medium settings with the desktop in my sig.

EDIT: you will most likely need a new power supply to play that game as any supported hardware will not run on just 200W.

I doubt it, you can't run a modern game on dinosaur hardware.

the FX5200 is terrible, I have one, I have my doubts about whether or not you can run that game on your computer.

You could try running this applet, it scans your computer and lets you know if a game is playable or not.

No, you wont be able to play Fear on an FX5500. You will have to maybe upgrade to a 6800+, but they are all PCI-E, so i suppose you could upgrade your mobo.

Default Re: GeForce

for ur info i got the vid card and if u want to play FEAR get a 6800+. Any and that video card is like $32 and u need a $75 one at least. If i where u i would do a Overhual like i am doing and build it. My 5200FX is OCed and it cant even play ANY GAMES THAT ARE ACTUALLY INTERESTING. Rome total war is a ferget Low settings and shuts down alot. U need more RAM a better GPU a better CPU a better Mobo for the new GPU with pci-e and a bigger PSU. If u want the specs of the computer im going to get with all the parts thats about $800 Aim me or just post again
