    GeForce Fx5200 W10 driver


    I recently built my pc and wanted to do some Hardware Monitoring, i found our old desktop in the attic and ripped it apart and found an aftermarket GeForce Fx5200 Along with a couple of old dell 4:3 15" as of now only one is going and it's running off my GTX 750 FTW but i want Hw monitor and Skype to run off the 5200 on the 4:3's but when i searched online for drivers and didn't find anything i was not surprised seeing as this graphics card was around when i was in a car seat. (im 15, yes i got a job and paid for it myself along with my car and snowmobile but i digress )
    So in the end my questions are
    - Do they plan to make a driver for it or is there one available
    - Can i run an older driver [Windows XP, Vista, 7] Compatibility mode
    - Is it worth my time
    hope you guys can get back to me soon

    Even if you could find a driver for it (the last was a beta driver for Vista), the card wouldn't work anyway. See here for why,

    Windows 10 will not load the NVIDIA display driver for my older graphics card in my PC that has multiple graphics cards

    The link is to a description of why you can't mix different generations of cards. I doubt that "Nprguymc" wants to run more than one graphics card in his system.

    I doubt that the FX5200 has WDDM drivers of any flavor. Probably XDDM (for XP), which would allow the card to run under Vista or 7 but not 8 or 10.

    It's possible to interpret it that way. "Maybe Nprguymc" would be willing to clarify.

    (IMHO, it would make more sense to connect the second monitor to the 750, even if the FX5200 would work. Which it won't. Even if was alone in the PC.)

    I wouldn't want to run it like SLI where they work together i would want them to be independent so i could
    A: get the most out of my 750
    B: not have to purchase another adapter
    C: Have a power source for the fan on my side panel (the only reason why it's still plugged in)
    Hope this clarifies things a bit better

    My apologies. You really did want to run a second card.

    I see that the 750 FTW has one each DVI, HDMI, and DP output. The explains the "adapters" bit. (What do you need? VGA?)

    I don't understand the "power source" bit. You can take 12V power off of a graphics card to run a case fan? Would never have occurred to me to do that.

    Hey man no problem! Yeah i think my uncle may have a DP to Vga spare that i could run over to his place and get

    Yeah it's a 12V power source on the card and i found a 2 pin that works with an old Antec 3 speed i found in my stock pile that i soldered together i don't know if it does anything but i'm fine with it

    Thanks for taking the time to help me out!
