PCI cards are not the best, but they get the job done just fine. So unless someone is striving for the best, well don't use PCI cards. I for one, only have PCI cards, and my 2400 HD Pro PCI card is great, so i am happy that there are some out there that still release new PCI cards.
The 6200 Series is not good, they are unstable and they do not have any supported drivers, i hate those cards. I had the BFG version and the EVGA version, i could never shut off my computer, and no driver would work correctly with the card, plus the evga version got extremely hot after 30mins of playing UT2003. Those 6200's series are bad.
I put an old GeForce 6200 AGP card in my girlfriends computer that I built for her. It's been experiencing some issues
(like random losses of signal). It runs very cool (it has a passive heatsink, but I put a 120mm fan next to it). I don't know for sure if the issue stems from the age and/or revision of the card, or the possibility that the 6200 series just had issues from the get-go, or some inherent flaw with the reference design. I'd guess (or hope) that if there were issues with the older cards, they've been fixed by now.
