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?
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.
