Nope, not available on there. Even if you can't find the 6200 anywhere, the FX video card is pretty decent. I use to own one so I know. Played Unreal Tournement 2004 with no problems at all and NFSU2.

Alright so go with that? Also, Should I upgrade to 1 Gig of RAM, cause it is within my price range.

Absolutely. If you like playing games and such. If all you were doing is listening to music, word processing, surfing the Net, don't bother wasting your money. You can do those things even on 128MB.

Well, NewEgg unfortuently doesn't have any 6200 OC 256MB in stock. So, you'll have to buy form the over-priced BestBuy if you want that card. In all honesty, I'd just get the FX5500, I was hoping that the 6200 OC was going to be cheaper...but BestBuy hath failed again.

Since you're going to be using PCI, you might as well not spend to much money on a video card, as the technology is already outdated, if not dead by now. Get either an FX5500 or a Radeon 9250. I've used the Radeon 9250, infact it's sitting right beside me, and it was a sweet little card. Although it won't run Battlefield 2, however it runs Command & Conquer Generals and Generals Zero Hour on High settings, so long as you don't max out the Particle Cap.

If I was you, I'd save up about $450, I can help build you a dual-core PC for about that much. Infact, allow me to link you to the parts.

Case:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16811147007

Motherboard:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16813157080

Video Card:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16814150128

Processor:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16819116001

Memory / RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16820161636

Hard Drive:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16822144173

Combo Drive:
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16827151086



Actually, the PC comes out to be under $400 before shipping. It comes out to be: $396.96. This PC has PCI-Express, Dual Core processor, SATA hard drive, and a 7300GS with Shader MOdel 3 support and DirectX 9. You'll be able to play any game you want with that setup.

Also, since you said you were willing to spend $200 on the video card and RAM, save up that money, find some pop cans, exchange them in, get cash. Save up, buy that PC I suggested. You won't regret it. Plus, you'd be surprised how much money you can make in a single weekend just doing misc. jobs. I made $120 in one weekend just exchanging in pop cans and doing yard work. That's how I bought my X700.

You can't go to your local WinCo and exchange in popcans and exchange the ticket in for cash? Man, Oregon has it all...I swear...
