I have an FX 5500, and Blender runs quite nice. It is a good idea to check for the latest drivers though. Especially when you try and install new software. I’m heading over to nvidia.com as we speak to look for the latest.
I am thinking about getting a new card soon though. Mine can get the job done, but it is still not quite powerful enough. But I don’t want to go out and spend 400 plus dollars on a card.
I have heard great things about the Geforce FX 6600 GT. It is only around $200. Anyone here have that card?
