The GeForce FX 5600 was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in March 2003. Built on the 130 nm process, and based on the NV31 A1 graphics processor, in its 5600 variant, the card supports DirectX 9.0a. The NV31 A1 graphics processor is an average sized chip with a die area of 135 mm² and 80 million transistors. It features 4 pixel shaders and 1 vertex shaders, 4 texture mapping units and 4 ROPs. Due to the lack of unified shaders you will not be able to run recent games at all (which require unified shader/DX10+ support).
