I need to replace my video card in my Dell Dimension 8300. The current one has gone bad. Downloading the correct up to date drivers is not working. Current card is a Nividia GeForce FX 5200.

What is a comparable replacement.

That motherboard takes an AGP video card, which is obsolete by several years now. I'd recommend getting one out of a junk computer, or maybe a cheap one on eBay. The board has an 1.5V AGP slot, so any card designed for 1.5v or universal would work. Only the oldest of old cards may not fit (the 3.3V cards had the key slot moved to the front). Universal cards will have a key slot at the front and the rear. I'd probably check on eBay if you can't find one locally.
