It's great for $50. Lets you play most modern games on medium / high settings.

Of corse really new games like FEAR and Battlefield 2 the card will choke a bit,b ut you get what you pay for.

the 9800 pro is a decent agp card. definitely not the best, but all the same, it's definitely not the worst either. if you're upgrading from intergrated to this. you'll love it.

lol the geforce 6200 is a pretty sucky card no offense. that card was like top of the line a year or two ago. now it's a mid-low end card. you'll be able to play games like wow and cs source on decent settings, don't worry about it, it's a good investment.

For $50, that's a pretty good price for a 9800 Pro. That card was considered top-of-the-line about two years ago (cost about $400 at launch). It'll play most games fine on decent settings.
