Hello,

I am currently having laggish and slow frame rate issues with my GeForce FX 5200 videocard.

Also, the quick and easy solution might be that is it not able to handle these games: Civilization IV, and World of Warcraft.

These are my system specs:

HP Media Center PC m7060n
Intel Pentium 4 CPU GHz
1 GB of RAM
Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 2

Because of these issues I have reverted back to the Integrated Videocard that came with the machine (Intel® 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family.)

These are the steps I have tried to resolve the problem:
Disabling the old videocard
Reinstalling the FX 5200
Updating the Drivers from the nVidia website
Using the drivers off the CD.

I have tried all these things and still I am experiencing really slow frame rates, however when I am on my Integrated Videocard the frame rates are still somewhat faster, but still not very good. Please help me out! Tell me what to do! :sayno:

The problem is the card. That thing is the equivalant of a GeForce4 but with pixel shading, so it's more like a GeFroce4 Ti4200. Only slower. Do you have an AGP or PCI-E slot in your PC? If so then you have a few options available.

No I only have PCI slots in the machine, so what are my options for buying a new and better card?

Okay so if I were to consider buying a new computer, should I just build one or go ahead with a prebuilt package, and if so what is a good brand to consider for gaming.

Prebuilt = pure evil. If you can you chould build one because that way you can choose exactly what you want inside.
