You know I really wanted to use that 6200 I got, it was a verry nice card. I can get one pretty cheaply from newegg, but I got mine ( a bfg I think) from Be$t Buy on sale for $99. Had to take it back though, If I get a bigger psu can I run this? I mean... will the 2x agp limit me at all? And will I see a performance increase?
Another psu is no biggie for me, I could probably get a 300 or 400 watt for 30 dollars or less that would be tons better quality than the one I have, and use the one I have for parts. ( I desolder everything I can re-use on electronics, those big ol' 200v filter caps are nice for tube stuff too!
I'm not sure about how It compares to the 9700 Pro.. I'm not too familiar w/ that card. We have a 9600xt w/overdrive in our older pavillion and let me tell you that is a nice card. Its core clock is 500mhz and around 350mhz memory. Completly whoops my fx5500 by FAR. Our x700Pro in our new Hp media center whoops up on the 9600xt too. I'm not sure how the 9600xt compares to a 9700 Pro though. I'm sure my card is a lesser product, and honestly I don't see any increase in performance having the 256mb memory on my card.
