    That 6200 has a core clock at 350mhz. Although the 5500 has twice as much memory, I think that you should go with the 6200. But thats my opinion.

    The 6200 would blow the 5500 away, but I'm very surprised that a pci 6200 exists. I thought there would be no more pci cards made, (since the fx series and ati 9xxx series). I thought at first it might be a pci-express card mislabeled as a pci card, but even the product box says pci.

    I also couldn't find the card at any other store, which is odd.

    If it is pci, and it looks like it is, then get it, it's the best pci card so far. I still can't believe someone made a modern pci card though.

    It's even listed on the mfg's website too.

    3dfusion is made by bfg tech, which is a good company.

    I don't think those will be able to play CS:Source at high settings though.

    This review (@anandtech.com) shows it does +/- 50 fps @ 1024x768 when running on a 3.6GHz Pentium 4 & that's on a full fledged PCI-e slot running the default stress test. :p

    I'm just saying that he shouldn't expect more then what he will get.

    I agree, pci will not be as fast as pci-e. I think it will be playable though, on lower res and w/o aa or af. I wonder how much pci would cause it to suffer in terms of fps.

    Anyways my friend has a laptop with a 9700 pro 128 mb and a 2.0 ghz processor and 512 megs of ram and he gets 100+ fps on high settings, although he prefers lowest res. though.

    800 x 600 is ok, i dont really need aa or filtering.
