what is wrong with this video card here

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814125048

all the reviews were good

im looking for a card that can handle americas army on the lowest settings.

the one that came with my dell optiplex gx260 works but it is quite laggy

that is why i am puting a 512 mb stick of ram in it and upgrading my video card

No man, it does not.

First off, are the speeds of your ram matching? Second off, you can only use AGP 4X/8X cards. PCI slots are just universal slots, the good GPUs use pci-e.

Lastly, that card you liked to is sooo bad. I doubt it will run AA at all.

Get the 6800 if you want a decent card that can run some games.

The best one I could find on Newegg for ~$50 was the 9600XT, here. Now as to how well it will run AA, I have no idea, but I can assure you that it'll be worlds better than the FX5200.
