Jaton Nvidia GeForce 6200

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
So I have had this card sitting in a box for several months, and had nothing to use it for. So I decided to stick it up on Ebay and sell it for whatever I could get out of it. Now, I did no research before hand, assuming it wasn't worth much of anything due to it being an older card, and only being a 256mb. Now that I have it listed, I Googled it just to check it out a bit, and these cards are selling anywhere from $40-$120!

My question is: Why? What makes this card worth so much? Or is it just being overpriced?

It has the usual VGA and S-vid on it, but it also has a TV out, is that why? I am oblivious as to why someone would pay so much for it.

OP I wondered the EXACT same thing a few months ago when I was looking into upgrades for the P4 Dell I have in my sig. The 6200 is a great upgrade to squeeze a bit more life out of older PCs because it supports DirectX 9, meaning it can run Windows Aero. I saw that same card going for those prices and was like screw that, not going to spend all that money on an already obsolete computer.

I guess it's supply and demand.

Well, I have the supply... I hope the demand is strong enough... I could use the cash. lol

I started the auction at $0.99, so we'll see where it goes.

Seems like an expensive way to run Aero and not much else.

It confuses me too, all Jaton cards are extremely expensive and old.

Look at this nVidia FX 5200, its 80$. The only thing special about it is that wierd connector on it that looks like DVI but it is not, but im sure that is not worth 60$.

Dual-DVI port. But yeah, ridiculous price.

i believe those jaton cards are pci not pci-e, hence they are quite rare and is the only upgrade option for older rigs like pentium IV with no pci-e slot.

I myself will be willing to pay at least $30 for a pci card for my older rigs

That's the one I have, but it has a wider board without the ribbon cable on it. Same model number and specs. $82?! lol

EDIT: Actually, no.... Mine doesn't have DVI, it has S-video, VGA and TV out... Weird.
