    A graphics card is a piece of hardware. It's physical, so you can't "download it". You are probably downloading graphics card drivers for other cards, for which you don't meet the requirements because you don't have it.

    This is your graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200.

    You need to go out and BUY a new one.

    It's like downloading a car to drive to school or something....

    You buy a graphics card and download the drivers for the card.

    Im not going to be an asshole because ive seen this situation before and dont find it funny.

    Graphic cards are hardware. That means they are a physical computer chip looking device inside your computer case. Therefore, hardware must be bought and physically installed into your computer.
