I've got MSI 8800GT. My computer always freeze after 10-15 minutes in every games with Windows XP and Vista, too. I've got a newest Forceware (169.09), but before I have tried all forceware drivers (WHQL and Beta, too). Asus P5K motherboard, Chieftec 550W, Core 2 Duo 3.0Ghz, Kingston 4Gb 800MHz DDRII. I can't imagine what's the problem (Card's temperature or card's memory or what?). I'am sure the Power supply is ok. I've tried the card with other computers and the problem is same.
I think the 8800 might have been overclocked either in factory or by you personally. this leads to freezing occasionally. other than that is temperature (check fan settings). finally if your still having problems try exchanging the card for another, it'll probably have been because of hardware defects. it happens.

Older games(like those that require 256mb) were made to work on lower resolution video cards, they can't upscale to higher resolution. This is like taking a photo with an old camera and trying to make it bigger, it gets blurred. The problem with crashing is most likely caused by the game being made for an older operating system like XP/98 rather than windows vista, 7, or 8.
I think the solution for this might be using a Virtual Desktop Program which is a program that mimics an older computer so you can run older programs. Some of these are free or free trials. This youtube video might help.
yh okay two things only and only one thing sure among install the right driver for this card nd compatible with the windows vista to secondly an more sure is the over heating of the gpu of the card u need to ad more creaming colder
Hello romanhor79, i found latest drivers for your MSI FX5200-TD128LF GeForce FX 5200 Graphic Card from website fully compatible with Windows Vista, Xp. Click save driver to your computer, install the driver, don't forget to restart the computer. Copy and paste link into your browser and press enter.
Well without knowing the card, i can tell you this. I have a 8800gt 512mb, 4gb's ram and a 3ghz c2d e6600 and i get an average 42fps using the in game benchmark. It depends really what resolution you want to play at. I play at 1440 x 900. You would need at least a nvidia 8600gts or Ati equivalant card to play the game. Also a core 2 duo is definately needed to play this game smoothly- better yet if you have a core 2 quad. If you are using a laptop then I could almost certainly guess that it wont work. If you have a pc using intel graphics then it wont work either.
