Upgrading from Evga GeForce FX 5200
System is XP SP3 P-4 2.80 GHz 1.00GB RAM PSU 350W
ASUS MB P4P 800 Deluxe
I have the Evga GeForce FX5200 AGP and I would like to upgrade to a GeForce 6600GT AGP (1.5V) so I was wondering if my system would handle it or any other medium model
Thanks in advance

Okay thanks, I know my system is very old but so am I just can't afford to right now, I just looked at the 3850 AGP and my PSU isn't large enough so do you have any ideas on one a step or two up from the FX5200 that doesn't have a cooling fan on it thats an AGP

I wouldn't invest in an AGP system or upgrade, you won't notice the speed bump.
Save up a bit of money and go for entry level Intel Core i3 system; difference will be night and day with what you have and that €30-40 you'll spend on the 6600GT will be much beter spend on a new platform.

2nd hand 6600GT or 7600GT, more then enough for office stuff. MSI has a 7600GT passive cooled, hope you find one of those.

Geforce 5200 is also enough for "office stuff";
I think he wants to do other things than office stuff if he's looking for a VGA card upgrade :^)
