I ended up getting this, remember, all I do is watch movies, football games, bleach and such, so would this be a pretty big upgrade from a 6200LE...? I saw it as an open box and it was cheap (what can I say, I'm a cheap bastard) so I got it, not worried too much about not getting the driver disc, the reviews pretty much said to download the drivers from nvidia anyway instead of using the disc...

ASUS 8500GT

That's a pretty goot deal and will give a decent performance boost over the 6200. But your previous card was still sufficient for everything you are doing.

okay, I got the card and installed it, but I have a question, why is it showing up as having 512MB of memory when it's only a 256MB card...? not that I'm complaining, but is this right...?

I don't play games, so it would be wasted on me, and a waste of money for me...
