    DuVel,
    tell me you didn't trade your x1650 pro for the 6200 , you downgraded if you did, if you still have the x1650 pro...put it back! LOL, the reason its slower is that the ati card is at least twice as good as the 6200.
    after you removed the x1650 pro, did you put another card in?

    I think he had an nvidia 6200 card super......i think, but if that is the case, and you were using igp, still put the x1650 back

    well if its a GeForce 6200, they downgraded you, that's why your games are lagging.

    Hammers or scammers?

    6200 LE?

    Now, I know that the x1650 is no screaming speed demon, but it can still turn in a respectable performance.
    But the 6200?, that's really somewhere near the bottom of the gaming food chain.
    Those guys in the store are either dumber than an bag of hammers or are just a bunch of scammers.
    Refering to the October hexus 2006 review of the x1650pro review (ATI Radeon X1650 PRO 3-way shootout), you will see that the x1650pro is comparable to the GeForce 7600 GS.


    you need to march back to that store and demand that they change if for at least a GeForce 7600 series or ATI x1650.
    The way graphics cards are numbered can be confusing, but stating the way I have should leave them in no doubt that you know what your talking about.
    Good luck.

    Did you have any cards like sound cards etc, before you took it in.

    You say there's a card there, but a 6200le is integrated graphics and is on the motherboard. You may be just looking at an old sound card, or w/e other card was there.

    It would be a shame if they charged you for just taking out your old video card and enabling your onboard graphics.

    Actually, Red1776 is right, the 6200le *is* available on an AGP card.
    If you search Amazon or Newegg, you will see it.
