EVGA e-GeForce 6200 AGP 256mg card - any good?

I've got to update my video card because of getting a new 20" widescreen LCD monitor. Was curious on whether the above stated graphics card would be good. I'm not a heavy gamer (mostly Sims - not Sims 2), internet, photo editing, regular desktop use.

Any input on this graphics card? It's fanless, but we bought a fan to put in the pci slot to help cool in the inards.

thanks! :D

  1. the 6600gt is a good price nower days, i would ercomend you go with that, the 6200 is not recomended
  2. thanks for the response. I did alot of searching last night and actually did order the 6600GT. :)
  3. it depends on how much you actually play games. you can get a 6200 for $56 off of newegg, but you can also get a regular 6600 for $80 from newegg. In the long run you will be doing yourself a favor because a new game might come out t hat you will want too play and the 6600 would be able to play it while the 6200 would not. If you dont plan on buying any games for a long time then go with the 6200 because it is fine for regular everyday computer use.
  4. 8O -- I own the 6200 256 ( bought at PCCLUB 39.99 :twisted: )

    It runs Call of Duty United Offensive maxed out (1024x768) perfectly.

    Untill recently - i was in happy land :tongue: -- I decided to change mobo's and upgrade the cpu a bit by moving down the line the system i mainly use in preparation for new SLI system --

    Amd xp 2400 (2000 solid )
    msi-kt4a ultra (socket a)
    1 gig ddr400 kingston (matched pair)
    400 watt ps
    baracouda 80 gig (udma-100 :( )
    soundblaster 24bit pci
    --- eVGA 6200 256 agp ---
    netgear wireless wrtvg v2 -- comcast pro cable --

    ANyway -- it was running beatuiful for several weeks... then I switched to DDR400 --- ( duh i thnk i just answerd my own question :trophy: )

    IM NOT SURE WHAT EXACTLY IS TAKING PLACE YET
    I am experiencing random System Freezes -- which seems to be limited to running 3d displays ---video's -- screensavers -- game ..ect..ect.

    First installed it ran great NO PROBLEMS -- ON DDR-333
    then came the ddr400

    On DDR400 freeezez ocur -- SO

    I clocked down my DDR to 333 in bios and seems to be running -- yet very poorly --

    Related to grafics card ???? -- im not sure --- I ran tests on mem = good
    tried to use aquamark3 -- 14- 4.5 fps untill i saw enough and killed the power -- haaaa

    MEMORY i think is CRAPola -- Kingston value ram DDR400 matched pair = 103$
    yes mobo can run DDR400 ( so it says ) ....

    So HOW can I check the video ?? i found NO TOOLS for DOS mode ( like MEMTEST and such for memory )

    Im out of ideas and not sure where to turn to evaluate this mess !
    sry for lengthy post -- expecially when its my 1st here --lol ...

    At the least its bidding my time untill arrival of my
    Asus A8n32-sli delux
    also considering the
    MSI K8n Diamond Plus
    with
    AMD x2 4200
    -- still unsure about which to run -- cheaper DUEL 6600's --
    or single 7800 ( for now ? )
