Yes, you will need to install VGA drivers for the card to work properly and at its peak performance.
The drivers for your GeForce 5200 can be found here.
Just select the following from the boxes: Product Type: GeForce Product Series: GeForce 5 FX Series Product: GeForce FX 5200 Operating System: The operating system you are using on the PC that you want to put the card into. Language: English (US)
To make a long story short, the answer is no. Games that require 64mb VGA won't work with your hardware. drivers or software won't fix that only a hardware upgrade will do it. Plus s3 brand cards are notorious for bad driver support.
It all depends what kind of games you wish to play, you can probably play all the older games like Quake or Half-Life or older than 1997 just fine on your system with that video card. But you won't be able to play almost any of the newer 3d games out there. If you want to play new games like Battlefield 2 for example, you would at least need a new Nvidia or ATI brand video card on a brand new computer.
can you pls tell me what is your video card and did you install the driver for your video card? it might be the problem. if you have the cd driver for your video card install it and it should work just fine. hope that helps!
