I have a card with the Nvidia FX5200 chip in my daughters machine and it does everything she throws at it.

Just had an email from asrock with about thirty cards that they have tested on my motherboard,quite a few are asus cards but that is to be expected,i will have a look at them,but i think i will go with the FX5200, thanks again.

I have used that same card on the Asrock that I fitted in my brother-in-laws PC when his last board died

The card was delivered this morning,on the box it states 128MB 64bit, i am not sure what 64bit means in relation to 32bit,my system is quite old now and i am not sure if this card will work on my pc,

It should work ok My old Lappy is a Athlon XP322+ 64bit CPU and that works with the 32bit OS

OOPs should be XP3200+
