It's a Geforce FX5200 not a FX5000, sorry.
I just bought an Nvidia GeForce FX5000 256MB Video Card DVI/TV OUT V31 from ebay. I'm upgrading from 64mb integrated intel extreme graphics and wanted to know if I made the right choice in purchasing this card.
My computer is nearing it's one year-old mark and it only has the standard PCI bus, not that new PCI Express or AGP slots so I had to settle with this one. I'm obviously not looking for high-end graphics but would like to play some of todays games. I'm more of a budget/mainstream gamer so I won't be overclocking or playing the most demanding games on my computer.
Please help me convince myself that this card was worth the money! You can view detailed specs here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=5237318214
And also, should I be worried about my 250v PSU since I have 768mb RAM and a Soundblaster Live! 24-bit sound card installed on my Pentium 4 3Ghz HT processor running on my Dell Dimension 3000?
