ive just got a 128MB Nvidia Geforce fx 5200 card to replace my 64MB geforce 4 mmx card.....ive installed it the way the manual tells me with the drivers n everything but when i play a game its quite jerky......ive got an athlon 2000+ processor and 256 MB of ddr ram which the games says is recomended. what can i do to make the jerking stop.....its as if the game ran better on the old card
the fx 5200 is not really any good for playing the latest games ive got a 2600xp athlon 1 gig of ddr2700 ram i had a fx 5200 and the new games eg far cry would only just be playable the geoforce4 mmx is on par with a fx5200 if not a little better but the fx is compatable with the latest dx9 games if you want to play the latest games with good quality its a different card you need
To make games run smoothly with an fx5200 you are going to have to keep detail levels in games low, disable special effects and not use anti-aliasing. It will also help if you set the resolution low and don't to play which are graphically demanding.
