  1. A XFX Geforce 6200 256Mb AGP Bundle (Includes USB Joypad & FarCry Game)

    or a

    XFX GeForce 6200 512MB AGP 8X DVI Graphics Card

    i would say the second one but would like some opinoins before buying it.

    Neither. The 6200's use 64bit memory which cripples their gaming performance. Get a 6600GT.

    neither

    u may want to get the 6600gt like the guy above said. or a radeon x800, both would be in ur 140-170 dollar range. u can get a geforce 6600 or radeon x1600 for 120 bucks. But from the sound of it u dont have that kind of money and u only have an agp slot...so here are some suggestions
    DO NOT GET A 6200 u can overclock alot on them(if u are planning to oc) and but the 64-bit just will not cut it, plus they have 4 pixel pipelines which will not game worth crap. Memory doesnt mean anything. u can get a 128 card the will perform better than a 512.
    this card is ur best bet for only 73 dollars.

    i has 8 pixle pipelines- good
    128 bit- also good
    550 memory/300 clock good and u can overclock!
    128mb - not best but good enough to play games
    i have a 256 version of this card and from what i heard there is not that much of a difference. i run fear on med-high with average of 32fps, bf2 medium-high, doom 3- high,halflife 2 high,and call of duty 2 high, they all run fine! what are ur other system specs???

    hehe. Baltan we have pretty much the same comp. I just ordered the same card that applesauce has. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814121196

    I would have gone for the 6600gt but just don't have the money and did not want to upgrade my PSU. Sucks because newegg used to have an eVGA 6600gt for $109. Seems like with the switch to PCI express the AGP cards are not on sale anymore.
    Go with the 6600gt if you can afford it. You might need a new power supply though. Go here to calculate your requirements...
