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...

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.
