    I think the 6200's better, especially if it unlocks to 6600. It's easy to unlock(I did it) once you find the right area in rivatuner(top customize button, then the graphics card looking button,then nvstrap driver, then customize IIRC).

    What he forgot to tell you is that once unlocked, it heats up like butter on the pan. & you can't take for granted that it will properly once unlocked.

    Lol, true I'm having issues with my 6200, but I've read of many others, and it doesn't seem that anyone else is having the issue, and many have theirs unlocked and oc'ed to 6600gt levels for the core, and seem to have no problems. I have no idea what my issue is. It overheats on stock settings as well, maybe it's "fried" and now it won't operate properly(i.e. overheats).
