    im considering moving my nvidia geforce fx 5200 (128mb i think) from my newer computer to my older dell dimension 4100 (obviously im going to buy a better graphics card for the newer computer) but anyway,i was wondering if this dell dimension 4100 would be able to handle the 5200, i have a PIII 863Mhz, 384 MB ram, windows xp professional sp2, 10Gb of free space left, and my current graphics card is Radeon 7200 Family Series 32mb...

    You have to find what type of agp slot you have on the old pc agp2x, etc.

    what i'm finding says it's a agp 4x so the 5200 should be good, the 5200's are 8x but will run at 4x, there might be a setting in bios that you will have to change though, read your manual about agp or video settings in your bios.
