nVIDIA GeForce FX5200 Video Card, 128MB DDR, 128-bit, TV-Out, PCI,

$71

I need to have a PCI card for my computer since I screwed up and got a motherboard without AGP support. This mobo doesn't support PCI-E either, I wish it did, but it doesn't. So my only route I can go is PCI. I thought about a 9200se radeon 128mb, but...I realized it didn't support DX9 and had some technical issues with a couple games I play after reading reviews. In addition to this I have had problems with ATI in the past...and I have had no troubles with 3dfx/nvidia...so I figured nvidia would be the way to go.

Just wanted to know if the tech gurus around here thought it was a good deal

depends on what you like to play with this card...

maybe you should better save some money for a new mainboard and then buy a ne video card...

I currently have the exact card and I havent come across any problems yet.

However I do have an ASUS mobo and Nvidia chipset with agp also.  I think I payed around 50$ for mine at newegg when it was on special a few months back. But for games in general, it does the job just fine.

I have Call of Duty now and loved playing it through the first time (on my Intel Integrated BS card) but I would like to make it look better. Also I'm gonna buy Far Cry I believe
