They made the 6200 in a PCI version too. They don't carry it on newegg, but I know it exists.

There is a 6200 but its really hard to find.

I think my power supply is sorta small i think its 200w, but im not really sure. Some1 told me with pci video cards the power supply doesnt matter, is this true?

The FX5500 I linked you to requires a min. of a 250W power supply. Get this one and you will be good. Also with this power supply you can upgrade to a 6600GT in the future if you want.

Yeah I know he would but if he buys a new motherboard and a 6600GT later on he won't need to upgrade his power supply again was my point.
