Windows 7 Drivers for GeForce FX5200
I recently purchased a used GeForce FX5200 PCI 256mb to replace my original AGP card in my Dell Dimension 4600. According to the WIndows7 site this card is supposed to be compatible but I can't find any Windows 7 drivers for it. Also the card is not recognized in the device manager. Just wondering if I am doing something wrong or if the card is just not compatible. Any assistance is appreciated. Thanks in advance

The first set of Vista drivers are the only compatible with this card and also work on Windows 7.

I realize this is an older thread, but came up in one of the first searches I did.

Is there anyway to make this card use gpu rendering instead of software rendering in Windows 7 and IE9?

Thank you

You can try this however keep in mind, the GeforceFX 5200 is the lowest end DX9 capable GPU NVIDIA produced so it may not offer noticable difference in performance.

Also, since this is not a supported GPU, be aware that Microsoft nor NVIDIA will provide software support for IE9 issues with GPU acceleration enabled with the GeforceFX 5200.

Thanks :)

I already tried that and that option in IE 9 was still greyed out.

May have to try it again, just I case I didn't do it right. :(

Microsoft have blacklisted the use of Hardware acceleration on many devices based on feature verification.

SM3 minimum devices with 4k x 4k texture sizes are usually the minimum requirement.

So, what would be the next cheapest video card that WOULD support gpu rendering? I'm not a gamer so don't need a radical card.

Thank again :)
