    I have an nVidia FX GeForce 5200, i honestly have no idea on the specs with this thing. all i know is that its 3 years old and i've been trying to play FEAR, it'll play under a shitty graphics mode. for shits and giggles i bumped the display settings to high to see what i was missing...well lets just say i've decided to replace it. it'd display the game, just at about 2fps. is there anyway to expand the ram on the card? btw the computer is a 2.8GHz pentium 4, a gig of ram, with AGP v3.0

    6600gt or 6800gt. Or if you have money to burn, 7800gtx.

    don't waste your money on a card your cpu is going to bottleneck. 6600GT tops... 9600 to 9800 ATI also good choices.
