Default Need a new graphics gard

Hello computerforums.

I have a quick question and need some advice please
My Ati radeon 9500pro just died this morning and I need to buy a replacment card but don't have much .
I'm looking at a nVidia GeForce 6200 it seems realy cheap, is this shown in it's performance.
I've read a little about the GeForce 6200, it seems pretty decent but I don't really how it would compare to my broken radeon 9500pro.

Would a nVidia GeForce 6200 be a good replacment for me, any other suggestions on what card I should get will be appriciated too.
Thanks

the 6200 is quite a bad card.
I'd get atleast a 6600GT, it can play all current games fine, but u will have to play some games with lower detail levels. And it doesn't cost too much. (maybe around $100)

If u can spend more then a 6800GS would be great, but they cost around $200 so it might be too expensive for u.

Yeah, the 6200 isnt worth it, try saving up and buy something like a 7800GTOC or if you have something thats around $250 the 7600GTOC would be perfect because of its Core clock speed which is 580 MHz and memory speed of 1.45GHz. Ther both PCI-e and they both support SLi :P

Get atleast a 6600GT, it comes in both AGP and PCI-E flavors. It will handle any game out there right now with a moderate performance-quality ratio.

The 6200 is horrible, steer clear. I think it might even be inferrior to the 9500.
