I have an old Nvidia 128 mb DDR Geforce FX 5200 graphics card. I am looking to get another nvidia card (a greatly updated one) but i was wondering if i could just get any ol' card. There are so many different versions of cards with tons of different letters and numbers in front of them i get confused. Any help what-so-ever on this subject would help
thanks.

Well, that depends on what you want to do. If you are a gamer then your going to want to get a high end video card. If you are running XP and are upgrading to Vista... that card should be fine. The link below is what I bought for my Vista computer. I have had very good results with it. I paid about $150 - 200 for it... I guess I don't remember ... but it is a solid graphics card.
