That card is 5 generations old, don't waste money buying it, it will likely work but not well, don't buy that, look for something newer.

You can use that card but at lower settings.

Not sure how much you're looking to spend, but you can get a Radeon HD5450 for ~$50 which would be a lot better card than the 7100 ever was (and it wasn't all that great to begin with). Go up to $90 and get a 5670, or $150 and get a 5770 and you will be happy for a while to come, not to mention being able to run the game on mid/max settings.

I melted the heatsink thermal paste on my last GeForce (9800GT), and went to AMD/ATI cards after that; but I know nVidia still makes really good cards as well. I just don't have one to recommend at the moment.

Don't do it, Thats the card I had when I first bought STO, GARBAGE! i'm running the 250gts now it's nice.

You can run it but it's painful

Yea, I have the Radeon HD5670, it's pretty good for about $70. I don't like Nvidia.

I had to switch out my ATI card for my old Nvidia 7600 GT recently. As the Game would crash within about 2 minutes. If you look in the Help section its a long running issue with ATI cards that they crash with STO.

If I had to guess, I'd say it should run, since I run STO with a GEForce 6150 graphics card. I admit, I have tp run half resolution on minimal quality, but it does work for me.
