Modding a PNY 6200 256MB PCI ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I recently bought a PNY GeForce 6200 PCI videocard. It has 256MB memory running at 64 bit. I bought this card, because my AGP-slot has been damaged since a while and I don't want to invest in PCI-e. I know the X1300 PCI might have been a better choice, but the card is very rare in Europe, it seems.

But I saw some 6200 cards can be softmodded to a 6600 using rivatuner.
Would it be possible to mod my PCI 6200 card in the same way, thus unlocking 4 disabled pipelines?
Would I harm my card if these disabled pipelines are erroneous? Can I still use my 'modded' card after this trial-and-error?


greetings,
driesel

It shouldn't harm it, but you should check the chip type first somewhere in Rivatuner(NV44A?). I believe I read somewhere that the PCI 6200's are not unlockable, but having an NV44A card would confirm it.

There were also only a few specific driver versions that could overclock 6200 PCI cards, if I remember right.

I can't really test it right now, because it's a Christmas present I bought myself .

But I've seen this now:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814139010
Would this card be unlockable? It has 128 bit memory.

I dont think you Can Unlock PCI bus type cards..Could be wrong though.

Please fill out your system specs in the User CP at the top of this page.

Don't upgrade to a 6200 from a 6200. If you're going to spend $89.99 on another PCI card, instead put it towards a PCIe supporting motherboard. There's a PCIe 7600GT at newegg available for $78.99 after rebate - it has about 12 times the performance at least, so you really are paying for PCI compatability on the 6200's.

Well, I had given it a thought at first. But over here (Belgium) s478 mobos with PCI-e seem kind of a rarity.
Thus spending money for a new mobo, probably RAM too etc. was a little over the top. Especially since I'm planning to buy a new notebook too in the near future.

I guess I'll have to live with the fact that I can't go any faster on the PCI platform. Still it would be some minor upgrade from my current FX 5200 (which is very, very lame ).
Maybe this might interest you too:
The reason why I bought this videocard is because my AGP slot seems to be defective. The graphics are rendered fine and all games run at the usual speed. Only all colors are totally screwed up. All green is greyish, all red is orange.
You know what I mean, really irritating stuff...
I've once had gotten a leaking watercooling and since then the problem was there.
