I bought a new 6200 AGP, the fan has quit working.. Is this the case
with all cards of this model.. Do they ship with cheap fans to cut
down cost.. Can i purchase a cheap fan and heatsink for less than $20.

Yep.

Isn't that doing exactly what the manufacturer did, resulting in the
same end?

i didn't think the 6200s needed a fan at all, they're pretty low end -.-

No. If it is the 128bit (non-TurboCache) version, it will need
a fan. Exspecially if it is an AGP version with the HSI chip. Think
about it. The 6200 non TC is faster than a GF3, and problably falls in
the range of a GF4 Ti card. Would you run one of them without a fan?
Not talking about heat pipes, and water colling either.

A card's speed is not necessarily linked to its heat output, since there
have been significant die-shrinks. Thank VIA C3 and Intel's Dothan.

Also see http://www.sapphiretech.com/media/product.asp?prod=17. The Radeon
9600 is very much an equal of the Ti4600 according to Tomshardware's VGA
charts, yet uses the same cooler as a TNT1.
