I have an older computer with an Asus P4S800 motherboard ("mobo"), and my video card seems to be wearing out with my screen going black, and warnings of increased use of virtual memory. I've downloaded all updates. My video card is:
* Chip Type: NVIDIA Ge Force FX5200
* DAC Type: Integrated RAMDAC
* Memory Size: 128 MB
* Vios Info: Version 184.108.40.206.00
Oh, note that my motherboard is not an Asus P4S800-MX. Just the Asus P4S800. Yeah, it's older from 09/2003. I'm looking to get a newer computer later this year perhaps. Otherwise, this is fine.
My RAM is about maxed at 1.25Gigs using PC3200 400mhtz RAM (two 512s & one 256...I tried to do three 512s and the computer crashed repeatedly).
I'm not a gamer, except for some downloaded, old-school pinball from vpforums.org now and then.
Anyway, can anyone recommend some older, good deal video cards that would work well with my system? Something I could get cheap off of ebay or craigslist?
Doing some searches here on this site, I saw this article, but I need to make sure that they would fit with my motherboard and system and I'm not sure:
Please let me know your thoughts on the article and otherwise. Very much appreciated. The more detail the better, too.
thanks a lot in advance,
