My birthday is really soon and i asked to get FS2002 Pro and a new graphics card. I need advice though, here are my specs:
128 megs ram
Nvidia Riva TNT graphics card
(I know it sucks:-lol)
-I need to know if a GeForce 2 MX400 64mb will help my system or do you think my system cant handle it?

It probably wouldn't hurt, but I think your 450MHz processor and 128Mb RAM are right on the lower end of what's likely to be acceptable. I doubt you can do much about the processor without getting a new motherboard, but extra RAM may help. Bear in mind that this is the minimum spec., and if previous versions are anything to go by, any state-of-the-art add-on will need more.
If you think you system sucks, I'm still using a PII 350MHz PC with 256Mb RAM, 30Gb HD and a 16Mb graphics card. And Win95 ! Thus I'm looking at a complete replacement (1.4GHz Athlon chip, 512Mb RAM, GeForce 64Mb card and 40-60Gb HD) which should be good for a few more years !
If I had a choice between the GF2 and GF2 MX... I'd go with the original GF2 because the MX is NOT an upgrade. They made it cheaper so they can cater to a lower-end card user... and besides, you can get a GF2 card cheaper now that the GF3 card is out..
