        I just did a search for the graphics card and found a hit for an Nvidia fx 5200 sold under more than one manufacturer. Based on the age of the card, I would have serious doubts that it is still compatible with modern motherboards or current editions of MS Windows. The graphics slot used by those cards are generally not the same in a modern computer. Here is a link to the technical specs of that graphics card: https://www.techpowerup.com/gpu-specs/geforce-fx-5200.c60 Since that video board was produced and sold by more than one manufacturer, it may look different than what you found.

        It might be of interest to a collector but probably useless today on a computer.

        Keep in mind that the graphics card only had 128 MB of onboard memory and most current graphics cards have more than 1 GB of onboard memory. Just a fancy paperweight today.
