Default 6200 Gt?

I know the 6600GT is a good card, but how about the 66200GT? How much of a difference is there? I am thinking about buying this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...TT=Video+Cards

Thanks,
~Greg

There isn't a 6200 GT, but the regular 6200, IMO, is a good card for what it is intended for. Remeber that this isn't the hard core gaming card. Many people at this forum are hard core gamers and are going to bash the 6200, but if all you care about is playing todays games on medium settings or lower, then the 6200 is not a bad buy at all.

The 6200 is a budget card. its feature set is best in class and is a tad bit quicker than the X300. the 6200 will get you in the games no problem, just don't expect to max them out with Anti-Aliasing.

Like they said, not the highest end card, but good none the less for medium settings on today's games.

Yeah I am not much of a gamer, and I don't mind if the quality is lower on the few games that I occasionally play.

One more quick question: I noticed that it said the operating systems supported were Windows 2000 and XP, and I was wondering if it would still work on Linux...

nVidia offers driver downloads for Linux, so if the drivers aren't on the cd that comes with your card just go get them from www.nvidia.com
