I don't recommend buying a 6200, because is almost impossible nowadays to find one that has the ability to unlock the 4 extra pipelines, but who knows you might get lucky. Just don't buy a 6200 that is 64-bit interface, has a nv44 core, or is TC (turbocached), because those are the new ones that don't unlock extra pipes; lol I was unfortunate to have purchased one of these crappy suckers. But I still overclocked from stock 350/400 to 465/670.
If you can spend around $140, look at this eVGA 6600gt:
It's $139usd, but you recieve $20 back through a mail-in rebate, so grand total is $119usd + shipping.
A 6600gt will beat the living **** out of my 6200 anyday.
