The biggest problem is your video card. I dunno who told you a 5200 was good, but it's not. If you had a limited amount of money to spend on the video card then you could have at least got a 9600XT. And keep the settings low obviously when playing games.

Yeah your vid card is definatly not "the greatest" I think you shoulda spent a little extra cash like at least 50$, ..... and got a nicer video card... Im not sure if you can get it running much better.. Well the drivers will help a little, but with that card idk..

No, updating the drivers with this card will show almost no increase in performance. It's a simple matter really, get a better video card cuz the 5200 sucks. Get a 9600XT/5700 Ultra or better and you should be ok.
