Is there a difference? I just bought a GeForce FX 5200 and installed it... the requirements I'm looking for are ATI Radeon 8500 or GeForce 3 or 4 MX. Did I get something equivalent or is the one I have not good enough?

Please help...

Thanks!

You got an equivalent. It's not the best card around but it should work if that's the requirements listed for graphics adapters for whatever your running.

Thanks... my son is getting a new computer for his birthday and he REALLY wants the game Guild Wars... I just hope what I bought works.

The game's System Requirements are:
Windows XP/2000/ME/98; 800 MHz Pentium III or equivalent; 256 MB RAM; ATI Radeon 8500 or GeForce 3 or 4 MX with 32MB of video memory; 500 MB hard drive space; Internet connection; DirectX 8.0

I upgraded him to 1GB of RAM also when I put in the AGP Video Card. Will this game work on the system now?

Thanks!

Yes, it's got a 2.1 Ghz processor.

I really appreciate the help. I hoped that all this would work!
