Amazing dual monitor card
5 Star Review   By member Dest747 - Apr 7, 2009   

Strengths: 256 MB memory, dual monitor support, it can run Windows Aero, DVI and VGA Ports, moderately cheap

Weakness: Not as fast as you would want for games. Drivers on the disc don't work for any OS above XP. SLOW on Vi$ta.

This is a great little card for aging systems. I have a 1.66 GHz AMD Athlon XP, and 1.25 GB DDR2 RAM. It runs both my monitors in extended desktop mode (1440x900 and 1280x1024 are my monitors' resolutions) and can STILL do 1080p video. It also runs Aero across BOTH monitors, with no lag. Great for Photoshop and light video editing too. I can play Portal in a (small) window at 40-50 FPS with high settings. Other than that, it's not very good with games. My only recommendation is to use the Windows 7 Beta (A LOT faster than Vi$ta, trust me) and to get drivers online from the NVIDIA Website. Hope this helps.

4 Star Review   By member daddyfatty - Mar 15, 2008   

Strengths: nvidia/price/performance

Weakness: none noted yet

Had to buy a new video card for my Dimension 8300 because the old one would not display graphics any longer.Didn't want to break the bank on an old computer so i picked this card up at amazon for $41.The reviews i read were accurate as this is a pretty good card for the money.It displays the higher screen resolutions of todays flat panel monitors and the few games that we play run much smoother now.I'm so thrilled with the performance boost i went out and bought 2gb of memory to really supercharge my aging Dell.

5 Star Review   By member farfromfiction - Aug 13, 2007   

Strengths: Easy install, affordable, more than enough RAM for most games. Runs very quiet.

Weakness: None thus far.

I bought this card for my older desktop and it plays games like NBA Live 2007 and Winning Eleven perfectly. Vice City also does not lag and every single detail is displayed. Recommend this card to anyone who wants a decent card for some pocket change.

GeForce 6200 Video Card
4 Star Review   By member rkr22 - Mar 26, 2007   

Strengths: High Quality Video Reasonable price TV DVI

Weakness: This is not a high end gaming card. Can not unlock the extra pipelines.

This card is a good upgrade for those of you who do not have on board video and do not plan on doing extreme gaming. This is an 8x card and is backward compatible with 4x AGP.

4 Star Review   By member Mikema85306 - Mar 24, 2007   

Strengths: Powerful. Adequate, and inexpensive. DVI output.

Weakness: None.

Bought this card at a very reasonable price (after rebate). Very satisfied with its performance. Good enough for playing games and great for viewing photos. A great card if you do not want to spend hundreds of dollars on an exorbitant video cards.

XFX Geforce 6200 Review
4 Star Review   By member praetorian - Mar 12, 2007   

Strengths: Pros: Decent 3D performance considering entry-level card. Good for Windows Vista. Silent cooling (no fan) and low-profile/half-height. 256MB VRAM. DVI, analog VGA, and S-Video out.

Weakness: Half-height bracket not included (but can be purchased separately), only for desktops with older AGP slot

The XFX Geforce 6200 is an overall good basic card for the money. Available as an AGP card, it works well in Windows Vista in Aero (3D graphical mode), scoring a 4.0 in Aero Desktop performance and 2.7 in 3D graphics performance—quite respectable given the card’s diminutive size (half-height) and silent cooling. This combination of low cost, small size, passive cooling, and decent performance makes it a good choice for those building a home theatre PC or PVR. Some nice touches are the black PCB and gun metal gray mounting bracket. Overall a very solid card for the money.

A decent graphics card for budget systems and HTPCs...
4 Star Review   By member nabeel72 - Mar 1, 2007   

Strengths: No fan - No noise Low profile - fits in most HTPC boxes

Weakness: 64 bits so probably doesn't use all 256MB of memory

It's a decent graphics card for the price I paid. I do NOT recommend using it for serious gaming. I generally play my old games such as Age of Empires on this machine and they work pretty well at 1280 x 1024 resolution. In addition, the other reason I purchased this was to free up the RAM that was tied up by the integrated graphics shared use of memory.

XFX GeForce 6200 AGP Video Card
5 Star Review   By member Bob_F1 - Feb 28, 2007   

Strengths: Excellent price to performance ratio

Weakness: Surprisingly Cheap Packaging, Not for serious gamers

This card was an excellent upgrade from my GeForce 5200. When you can find it on sale, it's an excellent "Bang for the Buck" solution. This is, of course, not a card for serious gamers. I was also surprised that the card itself arrived in a retail box without any padding. The box was basically the same size as the card. This is generally not a good idea for graphics cards.

Decent Card. Good enough for an SD HTPC
4 Star Review   By member aarongrose - Feb 27, 2007   

Strengths: low profile, 256mb, fanless heatsink means it is quiet.

Weakness: no hdtv out

This is a pretty good card. Good enough for the average user who needs an upgrade. Definitely worth the price. Low profile makes it great for an htpc. Also, not having a fan is a plus especially for use in a htpc. There is no HDTV out though unless you use the DVI. Doesn't come with any dongles for component out or anything else. S-Video out works great though.

Overall a worthy buy.
4 Star Review   By member BoilerHeat - Feb 1, 2007   

Strengths: Good quality, enough for many video games. Fanless so it's quiet. Reasonable price,

Weakness: Not powerful for 3D gaming.

The card uses the Geforce 6200 chipset with the 44a core. This means it's not over clockable nor can it have it's pipelines unlocked to increase parallel processing to the capacity of a 6600 series. If you want 3D performance, stick with a PNY card, otherwise this is a fine addition to the home user who doesn't need serious gaming power.

Great card for older system if you are not into gaming
5 Star Review   By member ssides - Jan 20, 2007   

Strengths: Works on 4x AGP systems, DVI, small, DirectX 9 support, low price, silent.

Weakness: Not for gamers, but I knew this going in.

This card was perfect for my needs. I had an older Shuttle XPC (about 3 years old), and it only had a single 4x AGP slot that allowed for a very small card. The Shuttle was using on-board video with shared memory and did not have a DVI port for my LCD. This card worked out perfectly! It is an 8x card that is backward compatible with 4x AGP. In addition, there is no fan so very little noise. I downloaded the drivers from Nvidia, and worked right out the box. Small, silent, DVI, 256MB, Directx9 card that is perfect for the SFF PC if you only require high quality video, but don't need top 3D performance for gaming.

Very good value
4 Star Review   By member Gjdude - Jan 16, 2007   

Strengths: No fan noise, 256 MB

I am using this card on my newly built PC and it is working perfect. It runs my games fine on medium or high settings( Need for speed underground, Serious Sam, Colin Mcrae Rally). It is compatible with Vista as well. I don't think it can handle recent games that well but if you are only an occasional gamer, it would be a cheap onboard video upgrade.

Ok Card. Good for general used. Not for gaming.
3 Star Review   By member stevesurfing - Jan 13, 2007   

Strengths: Low price. Cheap. Low profile, good for HTPC.

Weakness: Very limited 64bit Memory Bus. No fan. Poor performance. 4 PixelPipelines

Wats the point of having 256mb with crappy 64 bit memory bus. I rather have 128mb and 128bit memory bus. There is no fan on it, even after I stick a fan on it. Card lags when playing game after few hours. Well card runs ok for low to med settings gaming. Not for gamers. Also get this, this card can't be unlock, like the older 6200 cards.

Good card for this price
4 Star Review   By member mxk5488 - Jan 12, 2007   

Strengths: Good price for 256MB card, Support two monitors

Because this card is cheap enough, I purchased it to replace my very old 16 MB card. This card is easy to install and I can connect my new LCD monitor and old CRT monitor into the same computer. It is very convenient to display two different programs into two monitors. I can sometimes watch the TV and sometimes play game.

GeForce 6200 Video Card (256MB, AGP 8X, DVI)
4 Star Review   By member abumalec - Jan 8, 2007   

Strengths: Easy to install. Good performance.

Weakness: None so far.

Bought this card to replace an intergrated SiS graphics. I'm now able to play games I couldn't play before due to slow graphics. Picture quality and performance wa greatly improved.

Good for the money
3 Star Review   By member MacGAGA - Jan 4, 2007   

Strengths: 256M Onboard memory, fanless heatsink, DVI Out

Weakness: 64bit bus, not for serious gaming

first I never had a problem to install the driver -- yeah u can find the latest driver on nVidia website but the one on the CD should do the work. Then the next thing I noticed is the quiteness - compare to my ATI x700 this one is noiseless, thanks to the fanless heatsink (be careful that thing can become really hot though, after in use for about 20 minutes then u got to be careful) Picture quality when viewing DVD/DivX is good in general, no drag, very smooth, nothing to complain, but not too much to brag either... I was able to ran Doom3 but the FPs is kind of low, barely acceptable. BF2 & COF2 just wouldn't even start, don't know why... But except that this would be a really good buy for the money. I had this card on my secondary PC which also serve as a good Media Center.

Good card for the price
4 Star Review   By member avp667R - Dec 29, 2006   

Strengths: Easy setup. No fan so it runs quiet.

Weakness: None so far.

This replaced a ATI AIW 9000. This card is faster even with 64 bit path. Plays video back with good quality. Sharper and smoother than ATI. It is also Vista compatable. This is my first Geforce card always had Ati. Would buy Geforce product again.

Great Video Card
4 Star Review   By member Bjonez - Dec 15, 2006   

Strengths: Low Profile, No Fan, Decent Power

Weakness: Not dual DVI

This is a great card I have this installed in my HTPC set up and I am very happy. It can power a larger screen monitor without any issues and I have also used attached to my big screen TV. The best feature about this card is that there is no fan to deal with which makes it perfect to use as a mid range HTPC card. Would definitely recommend this card if you are looking to upgrade or create a mid range HTPC. The only real drawback is that it is not dual DVI, but that is not to much of an issue since I rarely have a need for the second DVI connection.

Good card for an AGP motherboard
5 Star Review   By member congtuxike - Dec 15, 2006

Good for the price
4 Star Review   By member wanzialways - Dec 12, 2006   

Strengths: Price

Weakness: Performance

It's a low profile card so I would expect it can handle the mainstream game well. In fact if I choose lower settings, it can run most of the games smoothly, probabay due to its Direct 9.0c compatibility. Also it would be a great card for DVD play back. I am quite happy with my purchase

Good budget card
4 Star Review   By member gyourek - Dec 12, 2006   

Strengths: price, DVI

Weakness: not for you super cool gamer-types

I got this to replace an old 128MB card. I wanted something with at least 256MB memory and with DVI so I could use the digital connection to my LCD. This card does the trick. However, when looking at other reviews before I got this card, it doesn't seem to be very popular in the gaming community. It works fine though for 1080 video. It is also "Vista Premium" ready, which basically means it'll work with the supposedly spiffy new Aero interface which some editions of Windows Vista will use. If you're on a budget and looking for a basic card to watch video and maybe some minor gaming, this card will work for you.

Nice card for those who are not gamers
4 Star Review   By member mmstudio - Dec 8, 2006   

Strengths: It is inexpensive; it is an AGP card and it works

Weakness: Not powerful for 3D gaming (which I don't care)

It is a perfect card for me and I am not a gamer. I don't care if it powers the latest games well. Things I like about it: - It is a low profile card and can fit in most small HTPC cases - It has DVI/VGA dual output and a S-video out - It is extremely quiet...since it doesn't have a fan - It has 256MB Video Memory and is capable of most non-3D or light 3D stuff - I spent less than $50 on it and it is an AGP card Cons: - It should have component HDTV out - It should have dual DVI as opposed to 1 DVI and 1 VGA - Bundled driver is not the latest but you can always download it from nvidia.com It is a good card for daily use or HTPC. If you are not a gamer and still has an AGP system, go for it!

Not compatible with my motherboard
4 Star Review   By member baie78 - Dec 8, 2006   

Strengths: Good quality, reseanable price, enough for a video card starter

Weakness: Not compatible with my motherboard

I have the Elitegroup P4M800PRO-M motherboard and it says it support 8X AGP. But this card does not work on the motherboard. I think it might be the problem of the motherboard. But anyway, if you want to use this card on this model of motherboard, don't buy it. Otherwise, it is a nice card with reasonable price.

Inexpensive dual monitor
4 Star Review   By member rlsoden - Dec 7, 2006   

Strengths: Inexpensive, dual monitor, quiet, DX 9.0c support

Weakness: Not top of the line

This card is pretty good. I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on the latest and greatest. I can play Company of Hero's but with the settings on medium. All in all it is a very good card for the price. Unlike my last card, this card uses a heatsink so it doesn't have a noisy fan which is a plus.

Cheap but great
4 Star Review   By member tbarreira - Dec 3, 2006   

Strengths: Cheap card but definetly worked for my purpose. I wanted to have 2 monitors hooked up to my old Dell computer.

Weakness: Not the best card for gaming

This card is an affordable solution for anybody that just wants to have two monitors at the same time. Multiple resolutions are supported but be aware that the 2 monitor set up will slow down the computer. I had some minor problems with the card but XFX support was great. I would buy from them again.

GeForce 6200 Video Card
4 Star Review   By member cecert - Dec 2, 2006   

Strengths: excellent video card with such a price. It is decent and worth what you pay for it. Very smooth for the 3D game.

Weakness: Meet a little problem when install it, but not a big deal.

I love this card. It is compact designed and works pretty good for most of the games. For watching DVD, it did a great job. It is a good replacement for my old video card Ge force 4200

Works just fine. No noise is awesome.
4 Star Review   By member tmangan2 - Sep 24, 2006   

Strengths: Fanless design with large heatsink. Plays low end games just fine. Price.

Weakness: Not competitive with high end cards -- obviously.

I bought this card to replace a GeForce FX5200 that I had paired with an Athlon XP 2400+. This card made a slight improvement in the games I play (nothing high end), but it wasn't revolutionary. In my case, my gaming graphics are probably CPU limited as this card has pretty good reviews when paired with a more powerful CPU. But my main goal was noise. I love the fanless design. My system is now so quiet that when the montor shuts off, people actually hit the case power switch thinking the computer is off.

GeForce 6200 Video Card (256MB, AGP 8X, DVI).
4 Star Review   By member sshipman - Aug 6, 2006   

Strengths: good video card for the money,nice quality even for non gamer,great for dvd watching

Weakness: a little difficulty in getting drivers loaded,even when u remove all previous drivers,still had get into bios,and fight with it

would buy again,good deal for the money,may not be good for the fastest of games,but should be good enough for most games,its very good for watching dvd,through the dvi interface[although i would rather watch them on the couch,as opposed to thru a computer]

Mediocre video card
4 Star Review   By member generallee01 - Jul 8, 2006   

Strengths: 256mb of onboard memory, heatsink no fan, overclockable.

Weakness: Can't unlock the extra four pixel pipelines. 64-bit bus

This is not a high end gaming card. It works all right for most gaming. I can play call of duty at the highest settings on everything. It doesn't make any noise because of the heatsink. Will need third party cooling if you overclock it. It is supposedly SLi compatible but I have yet to confirm that. All in all this is a pretty darn good card for $50 and is actually able to provide high graphics for most games. I would buy again and might if it is indeed SLi compatible.
