Question Comparable FX cards?

I'm looking at this.
What I'm wondering is; how would I find out the nVidia card that's comparable to it?
Thanks!

You would be looking at the Nvidia GeForce 6200, which is comparable to that. Get the 6600 GT though, its worth it.

Get the 6600GT, it's worth it, every single penny.

NewEgg.com only had AGP or PCI, not PCI-Express! Do they even come in PCI-e?
Thanks!

nope. They're too old! If it works in a PCI slot, there's also no reason for it to come in PCIex16.
