If no patch will be made, can thief 3 run smooth in this pc specs ?

"No" and "Not really", in that order. :| Ideally you should get some more RAM and a card better then the 5200. Something like a 5700 or a 9600.

DId you get any luck, I have a Nvidia Geoforce MX 440SE, I take it that card isn't supported to?

You are correct. The problem is that the instruction set used by the MX cards (really GeForce 2's in disguise) does not include pixel shader. Pixel shader is required to run TDS. It cannot be patched. See here. (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=37032)

Mr Perfect has you covered - the MX card (for both of you) won't run it. The 5200 will, but it's at the low end.
