[QUOTE=elliot5637;2081458]I am looking at getting a PCI Geforce 6200 video card now. Pretty sure the power requirement of it is 250W. Would the 20W difference between my PSU and the vid card reccomendation make it a bad idea to install this card? Also i am only looking to be able to play games like Counter Stike Souce and Dawn Of War.[/QUOTE]
On the power requirement, if it were mine, I would go for it.
But in theory you could damage your rig if the PS failed, so be advised.
When shopping for 6200 avoid “TC” (Turbo Cache) and LE versions.
I would try to find a “standard” version with 256MB although it could be argued that the card cannot fully utilize that much memory.
On the games, just Google <Geforce 6200 for (game’s title)>
I did that and found that your two games are reportedly OK with 6200.
On the drivers, this is an older design, so the newest driver is likely not the best.
I have a 6200 (PNY 128MB) on one of my boxes and it is very stable with 84.21 drivers.
This card is still in demand because it is one of the least expensive cards that will run Vista with full Aero.
