Default e-machines computer upgrade

I have an emachines w2040, and was wondering if the EVGA GForce FX 5200 graphics card would be compatible. We tried a Sapphire Radeon 9000 pro and it would not work.

Dude! We must be kin!

I have a w2040 (the rig in my sig... sort of).

As long as the card is AGP it will work. I tried ATI as well, but it seems that the VIA chipset on our motherboards doesn't care for them.

If you have any questions about what I've done with mine, just ask me.
