Chill out, this will be my only warning.

1: This is a USER to USER forum. We are not paid to answer your questions, we do so because we wish to help.
2: A FX 5500 is ANCIENT. Driver support for it was droped a while ago, assuming you are on Windows XP this is the latest driver that covers the FX series [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html"]http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html[/url]. I would probbably try these for the FX though [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71_2.html"]http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_93.71_2.html[/url]
3: If you bought that FX 5500 two years ago, i hope you did not pay more then $20USD for it.

4: AGP has been dead a long time now, the fastest AGP card by Nvidia is the 7800GT, and they are hard to find.

He's not WEIRD - He's understandably FRUSTRATED... If he shelled out his hard earned cash for that Video Card - then he has a reasonable expectation that as long as it physically works - that the manufacturer SHOULD provide support for it.

After all - did it ever occur to you that an FX5500 might be all that he can afford to buy...?

OR that in his country of origin, an FX5500 might be all that is available for him to buy...?

andreim07 - Don't let any snobs who would look down their collective noses at you, make you feel bad about yourself just because they can afford to blow more money than you can - to buy better PC technology. I have an FX5500 that I bought when it was NEW and it came with a LIFETIME WARRANTY & it still works like a champ... and I will continue using it until the day it (or I) finally dies - which ever comes 1st.

However that said - you must understand that an older generation video card such as an FX5500 can only provide support for video games who's requirements are the same as those that were in existence back when the FX5500 was made - because THAT is all it was designed to do... Its not a matter of finding a non-existent firmware update - its a physical limitation of the hardware on the video-card itself.

1st - look up your PCs specs & see what upgrades that CAN be done to it that you can afford to make... Adding RAM to a PC can NEVER hurt and will almost ALWAYS make a PC perform better so it can play video games better.

2nd - look up the video-card's specs & see if the support requirements of the video-game you are trying to play is beyond what your FX5500 is capable of providing. If a video card cant meet those minimum needs - then no driver-update on earth will help you play that video-game - it simply cant be played on your video card.

3rd - Instead of trying to play high end video games - find the appropriate drivers to get the video card working well enough to play the "Game of the Year" edition of UnReal Tournament here's a FREE trial version [url="http://download.cnet.com/Unreal-Tournament/3000-7441_4-10247361.html)"]http://download.cnet.com/Unreal-Tournament...-10247361.html)[/url] - if you like it BUY a copy of it... Then go to [url="http://www.beyondunreal.com/main/ut/utessential.php"]http://www.beyondunreal.com/main/ut/utessential.php[/url] & download the utpatch436nodelta.exe - then go to [url="http://liandri.beyondunreal.com/Unreal_Tournament"]http://liandri.beyondunreal.com/Unreal_Tournament[/url] & to [url="http://www.utpg.org/"]http://www.utpg.org/[/url] - to see what additional levels & goodies & patches you might want to add - that your PC & video card can support.

THEN once you realize that OLD SCHOOL games can be FUN - take a look around online to see what other LEGACY (old school) video games that the FX5500 when installed in YOUR PC - can support.

4th - look for an old-school PC-video-game fan or an old-school PC Video-game forum online - and see if you can get an older (40+) geek, or a young gamer who loves old-school video games - to take you under his wing & coach you through the process of tweaking your PC & finding those video games it will support, and

5th if you cant do that - then you might just have to resort to old fashioned trial & error... installing one PC video-game at a time & seeing if it crashes or locks up your PC or not.

If it plays well & you like it - Keep the game.

If its slow & choppy - go into the settings/controls of the video-game & lower the resolution & shading & frame-rates & other features of the video game - to the bare minimum settings to see if the video game will play at all.

If it plays - but looks crappy - then one setting at a time tweak the settings until you find what balance of settings gives you the best picture & performance that you can get is for each game & leave it set there - after all a low-resolution version of the game is better than NO GAME AT ALL.

Its a time consuming pain-in-the-ass process but eventually you will find an assortment of video games that your PC with an FX5500 video card - can play.

Good Luck

Eh, i tried my old videocard[Ati radeon 9550(256 memory) - was the videocard before nvidia] and counter-strike works fine but not like nvidia :( .
The nvidia videocard is dead so i will buy another but not a very performant one, because my pc was buyed in 2004, and it is too old to buy high performance parts...also i don't play new games like left4deadand other ones.., i only use my pc to write programs/scripts and play cs 1.6 , so i don't need more..
I don't speak english very well, I'm sorry for that!
Thanx for your advices everyone!
