nope the 6600GT should be the lowest you can go, then most people would go for the 6800GS or 7800GT.

I'm not familiar with the brand, but the 6200 ain't awful.

True, it's not top-o-the-line, but it can suffice if your graphics demands aren't very heavy.

I'm running a MX4000, and have no problems with what I do.

True, the 6200 isn't a bad card. BUT, the 6200 TC (Turbo Charged) is a bad card. It's basically just a GPU. It comes with no video RAM. It utilizes system RAM. The reason it says 256MB is because it can use up to 256MB of system RAM.

Here's a card that is better than the 6200 TC, decent in overall performance, and around the same price. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814102637
