honestly, it wouldn't be worth it. even if you OC the hell out of that thing, it's still gonna suck pretty bad. my suggestion would be to save the money you'd spend on a block that works for it, and put it towards a new video card... or motherboard if he needs one with AGP or PCI-e. save the money for anything really, because i think it would be pointless to WC that card.

Heh... thats pretty funny!

they don't make waterblocks for 5XXX because only a moron (no offense) would watercool a 5XXX.

Just get a 7800GT for the cost of WCing, and you will be all set.

Hi HatedEnemy,

I will agree with the others on watercooling or trying to overclock the Geforce 5200, even if it's an Ultra. The card's memory clock, pipelines and ability to deal with newer gaming engines like DirectX9, Open GL, etc places it in the older Geforce3 category. It's an Ok card for web surfing, Emailing or office type work and perhaps older games based on the DirectX7 gaming engines. You'll spend more money than it's really worth. Try this link and find a new video card that's within your budget.

I'm sorry for the bad news, but that's why your not able to find much support for the card.

Take care and I hope this helped, :)
