CPU-Z will tell you, but I can tell you now that it isn't PCI-E (did they make a PCI version, if not than it is AGP)

Manufacturer doesn't matter, you can check that it is DDR in CPU-Z.

There is nothing wrong with the 6200, but XFX wouldn't be my first choice though.

lol: http://www.cpuid.com/ will be on that page, you can open it from winrar, no need to self extract it to anywhere. It will take a few seconds to load.

I randomly lost a XFX card, but luckily was still in warranty (just.) and there are alot of reports that this happens at a high frequency (random posh word there, lol.) However when they do work well they overclock extremly high.

The amount of memory it has. I think the 512 is the turbo cache one, which isn't good.

The card is not powerful enough for more than 128mb's of memory and any increase of speed it may give will not justify the cost.
