Umm it's PCI so no matter how good of a card it is, it will be limited by the PCI bus. Your call.

Thumbs down

For the love of god dont buy that card! It #$^*&#^$@ sucks because of the fact it is pci. Look for a pci-e card, or if your motherboard doesnt have that at least get an agp 8x.

You need a new computer then, you must spend $2000 on it and do it now. You must have a high end system.... PCI - lol :drool:

That's an exaduration. The 6200 will outperform the onboard graphics, there is no questioning that, but it still won't be half-decent, and will leave you wanting a lot more.

Then get a $40 FX5200 and hold out until you can upgrade.

Hense the sarcasm .
Besides this is in the wrong forum. Obviously it'll be better than onboard, but it's not gonna do you much good still, you wanna play anything at all, your gonna want a 6600 at least.
P.S "exaduration", is not a word.
Exaggeration, though, is.
