If you can still return the card, go for it, and save up for a nice 6600gt, or x850xt.
That video card was a POS from the day it came out. You could buy a TI4200 and get better framerates than an FX5200, and the FX5200 is NEWER! So don't tell me it's not a total piece of junk. Even the FX5500 is slower than the 4200.
Then you have the FX5600, which is just as fast a 4200, yet way more expensive. Again, a total over-priced piece of junk. I sincerely believe that the FX series was a lost cause and should have never been released. Horrible DX9 support.. just TRY playing FarCry with one of those cards.. even at MEDIUM lighting quality...

Doubt you'll find a great graphics card under 60. Heres what I have, the ATI 9250. It's about 71 bucks after rebate. Performs alright in most games, but again you'll have to sacrifice some frame rates.

Default Re: nvidia geforce FX5200??

don't worry. the world isn't over yet. return the card. say "I don't have PCI-Express"
and don't open it!!!!!!! it will not perform better!
look, get yor $40 back, save up another $60, and get a good card.
