GeForce FX Problem
 
Ok so I was given a GFX card from a friend and it is a GeForce FX 5200 256MB AGP 8x. However Nvidia don't make them. They are just using an Nvidia chip on a 256MB card. So where can I get drivers for this thing? There is no company name on it. Any ideas??

Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 Driver
 
What is your operating system if it is Vista? It is not supported
NVIDIA Forums -> Geforce Fx 5200

If not you can download the drivers here

One big step forward, particularly in the graphics card field, is the bundling of drivers by manufacturers. Regardless of who manufactured the card, if it has an Nvidia chip, you can get the drivers off of the Nvidia website and as long as it is a supported chipset you can rest assured that they will work perfectly.

It does mean you have to download a slightly bloated driver package, but in my opinion it is well worth it for the added convenience. Now if only other component chipset manufacturers would take the same step and keeping drivers up to date would be a much easier and less time consuming task :)
