That changes things immensely, and opens up a lot of cards. What kind of budget do you have? Also what is the make and model number of your power supply?

This guy here Nvdia GeForce FX 5200 drivers

Has the same card and there is a driver for it. My budget is $39 if I need to buy a new card.

If you can finsd another $5.00 this is a very good card for the price,

Newegg.com - Open Box: MSI R4670-2D512/D3 Radeon HD 4670 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card

If you're not afraid of open-box items (and from Newegg I wouldn't be), that card will blow your old 5200 out of the water. That and it is fully WDDM 1.1 compatible.

Will the PCI Express 2.0 be compatible with my mother board? I know 2.0 is the latest version.

Just a follow up. I am using GeForce FX 5200 DirectX 9.0 and have no problems with Windows 7. When it loaded it found and installed the new driver.

Graphic Card DirectX9 problems

I have an NVIDIA 8800GT alpha Dog and I just installed Windows 7, every time I want to set the screen saver or anything that has to do "Video" related the blue BIOS screens comes out and my PC restarts....

It tells me my Card might not supports DirectX9.. its a relatively new Graphics card... and the Driver CD Brings DirectX9.. what can I do?

Throw the driver cd in the trash.

Use this instead.

Or this for x64 Windows.

Everything I start trying to do is always disguised and well hidden in acronyms! I would like to know when this started. I would bet that the Military or Medical field are the culprits here.
It has become so common to use acronyms, that you really have to know the specified topic very well to be able to follow anything said.
The Military invented the Internet and probably had acronyms for it! NASA is one of the first I can remember as a child, but now it is so common that every Business in the spectrum uses them.
I fear that if our country survives for another 100 years, we will not be able to speak in an intelligent manner, but have acronyms for : "Hello. How are you today"? will become "Howdy Do" like the old folks from my Appalachian Mountains Heritage used when I was a child. However it would more likely be HD! Hard Drive or Howdy do?
I am trying to study the Microsoft Volume License test and if not for all the acronyms, it would be much easier! I have to pause and look it up for the computer lingo. Imagine trying to follow two or three doctors in a serious medical conversation! You would think they were speaking a foreign language!
That is where I am with computers-a foreign, lazy, language that is like the old short handwriting secretaries used years ago. They could read it, but you or I wouldn't be able to read a line. With computers being fairly new, I would like to see what acronyms will evolve to in the future! You won't know if a Hum V is a vehicle or a Virtual Computer sound disorder!

How to check a graphics driver for WDDM support?
Does anyone know how to find out if a graphics card driver is WDDM certified? Because I'm not sure if the latest one for my NVIDIA card is or not, as a driver not being compatible with WDDM can cause issues with transparency and other Aero effects as I've read.
