    Um, don't you just have to pop it in and secure it. Then plug it into the PSU?

    Make sure you touch a part of bare metal from your case with your hand to discharge any ESD in your body. :)

    No it'll be fine. As long as you touch a large piece of bare metal with your hand it'll be fine. It's just to discharge the static electricity in your body so you don't kill anything by mistake.

    Couples things to remember:

    -Hold the card by the edges
    -When putting the card in the AGP/PCI-E slot, push it in just enough so that it's completely in the slot, don't force it.
    -Make sure the retention mechanism on the slot is "clicked-in".

    After you un-plug the power cord it's always a good idea to press the power button on your case a couple times to discharge the capacitors in the PSU. :)

    It's quite easy to do, just take the safety precautions first. Then it's just plugging in slots and matching cords.

    To get rid of the static, apparently the best thing to do is to touch a radiator.

    You're going to install a card, when you don't know what mobo you have, let alone what card slot.
    I bet you don't even know how mush RAM you have.

    IIRC most FX5200's were AGP.

    I could be wrong though.

    BTW that 7300GT is a rip-off.
