are there model numbers for fx5200 cards?
 
I bought an fx5200 after researching it would fit my mobo and it had the right socket(s) (VGA)...then I get sent the the card, and it has a "DMS-59" interface socket...no VGA...no s-video...just this god-awful DMS-59 which I had never heard of, and looking around the net, seems practically no one else has heard of either

is there a list of fx5200 model numbers somewhere?...if not, how can you tell you're getting the right card?...who the heck ever heard of DMS-59?...I had no idea that meant "no VGA connector unless you buy a special cable" (which I obviously don't want to do)

can't find any model numbers on the nvidia site...got to be some way they should advertise these things if they come with some whacko connector, isn't there?

If you need one that bad, I'm pretty sure I still have my old one.

The DMS-59 connector is used for dual head cards. It's actually common on a lot of OEM cards. PM me and I can probably hook you up with one of the splitters for it.

I wouldn't touch an FX5200 with a 10 foot pole.

What made you go with one of those?
