Optimizing an FX 5200

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey there,

My issue is this.

I updated my drivers from 175.16 -> 175.19

Now I do not have the option to overclock despite re-installing Coolbits forceware. Also now RivaTuner Freezes when I click the Customize tab.

Basically I'm not too worried about RivaTuner not working. I just want the 'Overclock' option back into my Nvidia settings.

Also There is talk about (upgrading?) my specific card to a FX5500?
What will that gain and am I able to do this?

GFX card:
Nvidia FX5200
64-bit
128MB
Core Clock - 255
Memory Clock - 400MHz

There's no point in overclocking an FX5200. Old and slow card is old and slow. You'll see literally no difference honestly.

But to answer your question, they cut the overclocking feature out of Nvidia drivers probably 6 YEARS ago. You'll have to switch to RivaTuner or MSI AfterBurner (or similar). And I doubt any of those programs will even have support for your card.

Normally I'm all for tweaking, optimizing, and Overclocking, but ther is literally no hope for that card. I've had 2, a PCI and an AGP. They are by far the crappest cards of thier time, and are not even worth the PCB that they are anymore.

If it's PCI it has it's use as a GPU flash recovery card at best.

Seriously, if it's AGP, just throw it away or screw it to a wall and find something better cheap.

I was more just looking for a way to tweak the **** out of it to get the most I can out of it for S***s and giggles.

No one can seriously use this card for gaming as I'm sure all of us know

Like everyone above said,You won't see much if any gain on overclocking that card,But you could also try(ATI Tool,RivaTuner,MSI Afterburner,& EVGA Precision.

Thanks for the options. I'm using MSI afterburn and it seems to be working fine. Gained 15 FPS on Morrowind and 5 on San Andreas after OC.

Just a question.
What are the best, benchmarked NVIDIA drivers for my model or just in general?
I have 175.19 detonators.
Apparently some lesser Drivers are far better?

Sorry if that's a very general question. Just thought there may be a universally almost perfect driver for NVIDIA cards.

I very highly doubt anybody knows what the "best" driver is for an FX5200 anymore. It was the lowest end card when it was released. And even then, it was a DX8 card, trying to compete against the FAR better DX9 Radeon 9xxx series. So even in its day, people really didn't pay a whole lot of attention to it.

But yeah, I really doubt anybody is going to know what driver to pick for the FX5200. You could try googling, and searching through cached websites from 2002-2003 or so. That might help.

And I agree with DesertRat. If it does happen to be a PCI card instead of AGP, it could still have its use as a backup GPU Flashing card. Otherwise, if its AGP it honestly is junk anymore. You can get a 6600 or better AGP for under $20 shipped used usually.
