The best thing I can suggest is to get an ATI radeon graphics card. You don't say what your Operating system is. The Sapphire Radeon HD3650 is Vista certified and will fit the mobo you describe (ie AGP x8) The Radeon is made by the same company that makes the Processor in your Mobo, so compatibility should not be a problem.
An nVidia 7800 is the best agp card made, as agp has been taken over by pci-ex16 but any AGP x8 card will do, if its just for word processing and internet stuff just go with a cheaper one. found on on ebay for £20 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/NVIDIA-7800-GS-AGP-Graphics-card_W0QQitemZ380205251305QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Computing_Computer_Components_Graphics_Video_TV_Cards_TW?hash=item5885ffbae9
Only solution is to upgrade your video card. ATI Radeon 1650 pro 512 mb card is available in an agp format. This card is probably the best out there for an agp board. All you would need to do is purchase the new card, remove old card, insert new, reboot & use the cd that comes with the new card to install drivers. Hope this helps & please rate my answer fixya. Thanks.
PixelShader 3 (PS 3), is just a technique used by video cards to render images to your screen.
In order to get a video card to support PS 3 you need to install DirectX 9c (the 'c' is very important, version 9 is not good enough). Unfortunately your card only supports DX9 not DX9c and will therefore only play games that support Pixel Shader 2 or below.
Your only option in order to play the games you want, is to upgrade your Video card to one that supports DX9c or higher. Geforce 6 & 7 series cards all support DX9c.
One other thing, if you are looking to upgrade check and see if your card is AGP or PCIe. I have a feeling that they only made the FX5200 in AGP but check it to make sure.
AGP cards are almost obsolete now, but Nvidia & ATI do still make a few and they can be found on large online PC retail outlets or perhaps try and pick up a good one on Ebay.
Being agp3.0, it is backwards compatible so in theory, it should work. With the older system, it may be dangerous. I would find a card that clearly states that it works in x8 (3.0) 1.5v. If it doesn't work it could fry the whole system. If i find a card that works, I'll let you know.
Well running vista on nvidia 5200 and expect for performance is nothing but a dream.If you are a gamer, you shoud REALLY get a new graphic board...an nvidia 8600 could help you.the rest of the configuration is great for running vista and play most of the games(with a new graphic board).
IF you don't need another graphic board and you don't play demanding games, the video driver could be your enemy... here is a site where you could download a GOOD driver www.Guru3d.com
Maybe this post is a bit old, but on last deceber I bought an AGP 512MB ATI Radeon X1650 PRO for my Foxconn motherboard and I must say that it's simply awesome!
I can play most games on mid-high settings on reasonable resolutions (most on 1024x768) with good FPS (except with Crysis... but let's face it, did Crytek bought a time machine to warp a 2010 game??).
So, if you already have it, then congratulations, and if you still are thinking on buying it, then what are you waiting for!?
Also, it's AGP x8, if your motherboard support x8, then it should run perfectly fine.
Also, I have a bit of problems trying to run Prey on the X1650...
It always appears an error... it's not of much importance, as I have much better games, but I haven't tried it with high fancy graphics... :P
