I already play BF2 on low with a crappy 9550se and don't get any lag,As for going for a 9600XT or 9800 that's not really an option since they both cost more and i can only spend $100 max I live in canada and everything here is over priced.

i don't know what the AGP version of the 6200 is like but i can vouch for the 6200TC pci-e, which should be at a disadvantage to that. i play BF2 at 1024x768 with medium geometry, texture and terrain with decent frame rates. absolute minimum is 15 fps through heavy battle and smoke but i average 40-70fps. also plays fear and HL2 well. Doom 3 seems to absolutely kill the 6200 though :/. one unfortunate thing about the 6200 is in most cases AA is out of the question because it takes a massive hit on performance
