Please help me pick the video card to use. I'm building a PC for my wife's Mother from old parts that became available to me. I Need a little help. The main computer is an AMD 2800+ on an ASUS motherboard with 1GB ram. I have two NVIDIA video cards that I can use. Either a G-Force FX 5200 128MB or a G-force 2 MX 200 32MB I think the second one is a newer chipset (?) Does the more memory on the older card offset the advantage of a newer chip set?

The FX 5200 is the newer & better card .

The G-force 2 MX 200 is a real old timer!

Thanks! I have not had time to pay attention to the hardware side of computing for about 8 years, so I'm a bit rusty :thumbsup:
